Millettia atropurpurea, or commonly known as Tulang Daing is a beautifull tall evergreen tree belonging to Fabaceae family. It has been used as a timber and also planted as a wayside tree. The seeds of Millettia atropurpurea can be used as biodiesel fuel. In this study, two experiments were carried out. In experiment 1, a total 270 seeds of M. atropurpurea from three different stages of maturity were sown. 90 seeds were soaked in no treatment solution as control (T1), hot water soaked for 20 minutes (T2), and Gibberellic acid for 24 hours (T3) respectively. While for Experiment 2, about thirty healthy seedlings of Millettia atropurpurea were taken of almost equal size from Experiment 1 in each maturity stages. They were potted in a 10cm x 12cm plastic pot containing 1:1 top soil and coconut peat. The readings of plant growth were taken in terms of number of leaves, height, diameter and leaf area within 2 months. Results in Experimet 1 indicated that M2 and M1 were the best maturity stage for M. atropurpurea, where they attained 48.89% and 28.89% of seed germination respectively. The best treatment was from T2 with 47.78% of seed germination. In experiment 2, all the types of maturity stages showed positive growth in terms of height, diameter, number of leaf and leaf area of M.atropurpurea.
