Abstract

We tested 8 plants and 3 medium and tested pottery spherical base, thus achieving the results.The green coverage for light media S2 (pottery spherical to sandy loam is 8:2) is suitable for Alpinia speciosa the best growth, followed is Zoysia matrella, with Duranta repens as the third. The green coverage for median media S1 (pottery spherical to sandy loam is 5:5) is suitable for Zoysia matrella the best growth, followed is Alpinia speciosa, with Duranta repens as the third. The green coverage for heavy media S0 (pottery spherical to sandy loam is 2:8) is suitable for Duranta repens the best growth, followed is Alpinia speciosa, with Zoysia matrella as the third. Pottery spherical to sandy loam medium is more suitable for Duranta repens, Alpinia speciosa, and Zoysia matrella with growth. The ratio of pottery spherical to sandy loam is 2:8, thus increasing the coverage and growth for Duranta repens, Alpinia speciosa, Murraya paniculata, Portulaca grandiflora, Zoysia matrella and Spathoglottis plicata. The prescription, whereby the ratio of pottery spherical to sandy loam is 5:5, is suitable for Duranta repens, Alpinia-speciosa, Portulaca grandiflora, Zoysia matrella ,whereby the ratio of pottery spherical to sandy loam is 8:2, is suitable for Podocarpus costalis and Liriope platyphylla. The prescriptions, whereby the ratio of light-weight medium is 2:8, which is suitable for more kinds of plants. Different media prescriptions are well-grown planting combinations, in which one can choose different plant species based on the environment and in order to create biodiversity
