Abstract:

Investigation was carried out during 2017 - 18 to study the effect of alternate media on growth of “Dracaena reflexa ‘Variegata’ at Department of Floriculture and Landscaping, Coimbatore. The pot experiment was laid out under shade net condition, with eight set of treatments comprising various combinations of soil, sand, vermicompost, coco peat, rice husk, biochar, perlite and microbial consortia. From the media combinations studied, the treatment involving soil (25%) + coco peat (50%) + vermicompost (15%) + sand (10%) was found to be best consortia for number of leaves, leaf length, leaf width, leaf area, chlorophyll content at 150 days after planting. Medium containing coco peat (75%) + rice husk (10%) + vermicompost (15%) was found to be best with respect to root length, root spread and number of primary roots respectively.
