Polianthes tuberosa L. is commercially grown as an ornamental and medicinal plant and as a source of secondary metabolites used in pharmaceutical and perfume industries. Experiments were conducted to study the effect of cultivation beds (sand, fine gravel, manure, perlite and clay) on leaf number, leaf length and days to germination. Results showed that the effect of cultivation beds on these traits were significant. Sand for days to germination and perlite for leaf number and leaf length were the best.
Key words: Polianthes tuberosa L., planting bed, ornamental and medicinal plants.
