Abstract
The experiment was carried out to study the suitability of growing media for survival and growth performance of stevia cuttings at tissue culture laboratory, Main Sugarcane Research Station, Navsari Agriculture University, Navsari, Gujarat, India. Results indicate that the compatibility of soil mixture with various growing media is accompanying the survival % and growth parameters. Highest survival% was observed in Treatment T6 (soil + sand + cocopeat + vermicompost 1:1:1:1), 86.20% in association with growth parameters, no. of branches 8.20. Poor survival rate and growth performance was observed in Treatment T1 (soil +sand 1:1) for most of the growth parameters under study. Growing media significantly influenced survival percentage, growth and development of stevia. Components of best treatment media soil, sand, cocopeat, vermicompost played prominent role for growth and development.

Key-Words / Index Term
