Michelia champoco L. is commonly used as ornamental plants. !vi. champaca belongs to family of Magnolia ceae. This species is usually propagated by seeds. This resea rch was done to evaluate !vi champaca on seed propaga tion. In this research, four trials were performed. A to ta l of 3300 seeds of !vi. champaca that sowed were trea ted with sulphuric acid, hot water (SO'C-IOO'C) and lap wa ter. 300 seeds per treatment were arra ged in Completely Randornised Design. Germination o f !vi. cho"'paca seeds was evaluated. The trunsplanting of seedlings was performed after germinated seed has grown and produces their first \nre leaves. 75 seedlings were transferred into three types of potting media, which we re medium of only topsoil , medium of on ly sawdust an d medium with mixture of topsoil and sawd ust (I: I). Readin g of the plant growth was ta ken via the height, stem dia meter and number of leaves until 12" week. Res ults indicated that treatment with room temperature water was the best treatment for !vi. champaco. The growth study of M. champaca showed that a ll the three types of media resulted in different level of glowth in terms of he ight , diameler and number of le£lves. This research concluded that growth, biomass production and rool-shool ratio were diffe rent in a ll o f the media. The study of different media used gave significant effect on growth and root -shOal ratio but variance analysis on tala I biomass was not significant.
