The present study was conducted to evaluate of different growing media on the growth and flowering of Zinnia elegans. The Seven various growth media including soil loam, (Silt+ Bagasses+ Soil: 1:1:1) and silt+ leaf manure+ soil, (Silt+ Banana leaves+ Bagases+ Soil: 1:1:1). Silt+ Cattle manure+ Fruit vegetable+ Banana leaves. (Silt+ Goat manure+ Cattle+ manure+ Leafe manure: 1:1:1:1) were used for growing Zinnia. The research and during the seasons, 2017 respectively, in the experimental site at the Balochistan agricultural research and development centre, Pakistan. In three replication the experiment was layout in complete randomized design CRD. It provided equivalent importance to treatments. Number of branches per plant, plant height, numbers of leaves, days taken to open first flower, flowers per plant, single flower weight, blooming period and total were determined. The current study approves the fact that selection of the suitable medium of growth for potted flowering plants in this case Z. elegans was very vital from aesthetic and promotion point of view. The average necessity make sure the plant production of the obligatory superiority on cost effective basis. The current study determined leaf manure produced significantly the maximum vase life and diameter of flower while the maximum vase life and diameter of flower was obtained, it results evaluated research study that different growing media might be effectively used to obtain superior worth and yield.
