Abstract

Cassytha filiformis L. has a potential as a cover crop in oil palm plantation. This study aims to determine the effective method of vegetative propagation for the establishment of Cassytha filiformis and to determine the effect of different placements and different weights for the establishment of Cassytha filiformis. There are three methods that have been done throughout the experiment. They were different placements of Cassytha filiformis on the host plant (Mikania micrantha), two different initial weights (20 g and 50 g) of Cassytha filiformis placed within the shoot of the host plant (Mikania micrantha H. B. K.) and propagation of Cassytha filiformis through cutting method using Asystasia sp. as the host plant. The results show that the Cassytha filiformis established well when it was placed within the host plant with a higher mean of fresh biomass and growth distribution area. Cassytha filiformis was also established well when the initial weight for propagation was 50 g with a higher mean of fresh biomass and growth distribution area. Lastly, different cutting methods for propagation showed that Cassytha filiformis can be propagated well by wrapping it around of the host plant with a 72.5 % of success. In the end of this experiment, we concluded that Cassytha filiformis can be propagated by using its stem and it is established well in their new introduced place.
