Effect of different potting media on growth of rough lemon (Citrus jambhiri L.) rootstock was studied. Freshly harvested seeds of rough lemon were germinated in flat trays of sterilized sand under greenhouse conditions. Six week old seedlings, uniform in size were transplanted from trays to pots (15x15 cm). Leaf manure, peat, spent compost of oyster and button mushroom were added in different compositions with soil, sand, leaf manure and farmyard manure (FYM). Physical and chemical characteristics of different media combination were studied. Data was collected on monthly basis for plant growth parameters. Sand +peat (1:1) proved to be a superior potting medium followed by sand + peat + spent compost of Button mushroom (1:1:1) for growth of rough lemon (C. jambhiri) nursery stock.
