Effect of different growing media on vegetative propagation in betelvine (Piper betle L.)

Pratima Usendi, Bhagwat Saran Asati and Toran Lal Sahu
The present experiment was conducted during the year 2020-21 under shade net condition at Horticultural Farm, Pt. KLS College of Horticulture & Research Station Rajnandgaon (C.G.). The experiment included nine treatments in Completely Randomized Design (CRD) having three replication in which ten cuttings under each repetition of treatments. The various combinations of growing media significantly improved the vegetative growth of betelvine under study. Among the parameters under study, treatment Soil: Sand: FYM: Vermicompost:: 1:1:1:1 showed higher for most of the characters viz. minimum days taken for sprouting (22.93 days), number of sprouts, average length of sprouts, number of shoots, percentage of shoot, number of leaves, number of roots, percentage of roots, length of root, root diameter, root volume, surface area of root, root fresh weight, root dry weight, plant fresh & dry weight, & survival, while treatment Soil: Sand: Vermicompost:: 1:1:1 was also superior for length of shoots, fresh weight of shoot & dry weight of shoot. The result of the experiment suggested that vermicompost as a growing media is found most suitable for promoting growth parameters of betelvine cuttings.
