The and tags seem to be very similar to me. Unfortunately there is no tag wiki excerpt or tag wiki for so it is not clear what is its purpose.

There are only 4 questions tagged with and they seem to be general propagation questions. On the contrary there are 210 questions tagged with . There is 1 that is tagged with both.

Should be a synonym to or we just need a good tag wiki that would describe the difference?

I looked up the definitions and cloning appears to be a subset of propagation.

Cloning : producing individuals with identical or virtually identical DNA, either naturally or artificially.

Propagation : grows new plants from a variety of sources: seeds, cuttings, and other plant parts. Plant propagation can also refer to the man-made or natural dispersal of seeds.

I suggest re-tagging the cloning questions that are not really about that and adding tag descriptions for both would be of great assistance.
