Rootone-F hormone affect on survival percentage and shooting percentage. The highest result for survival percentage were reached by sand media with husk charcoal (91.38%), however Rootone-F reached (86.00%). The highest results for shoot percentage showed in sand media with husk charcoal and in Rootone-F hormone i.e 77.18% and 71.43% respectively. The highest result for root percentage, root length and number of roots were reached by sand media with husk charcoal i.e 18.57%, 214.25 cm, and 64 roots respectively.
