Abstract: Fly ash was mixed with FYM, Vermicompst and soil in different ratios on a w/w was used for growing nursery seedlings of Simarouba glauca, with object of response of pot mixture on growth and development of nursery seedlings of Simarouba glauca. The study indicates that the Simarouba glauca, positive influence of pot mixtures in enhancesing different growth parameters in general the treatment T4 (1:3) and fly ash: vermicompost: soil in 1:3:1 ratio receiving either farmyard manure, vermicompost, soil as recorded the higehest germination percentage maximum number leaves, number branches, root length and stem girth. Fly ash based organic substrates pot mixtures when added to the soil in different ratios benefits increase in plant growth which in turn attains significance from the point of view of eco-friendly disposal of fly ash. The germination percentage was enhanced. With vermicompost pot mixture with or without soil. It was maximum at 88.84 and 90.68 per cent in the treatment T4 receiving fly ash: farmyard manure in 1:3 ratio and fly ash:vermicompost:soil in 1:3:1 ratio respectively.
