The study used a randomized block design, which was repeated 3 times with 2 factors. Factor 1 is a kind of plant extract and factor 2 is the dosage of manure. Factor 1 consists of 4 level, while factor 2 that consists of 3 level. Observation parameters include: Shoots, shoot number, shoot length, root length, root number, total wet weight, shoot dry weight, wet root weight, and root dry weight. The results showed that the treatment of green bean sprout extract and dose 187.5 g / polybag showed the best result on the number of shoot and wet weight of cuttings. Treatment of green bean sprout extract showed relatively good results. Treatment of fertilizer doses of 187.5 g / polybag showed relatively good results.
