Auxin is plant hormones whose main role is to work with another type of hormone (cytokinins) to stimulate elongation of stems.

Commercial use of auxin is in the vegetative propagation of plants from cuttings. Instead of planting seeds, people can grow some plants by just cutting a leaf or stem; spraying the detached leaf or stem with auxin induces root production, and a whole new plant is formed.
