Abstract: The need for quality chrysanthemum seeding has increased with the promotion of chrysanthemum development in Tomohon for export plans. Seedling propagation through tissue culture is a technology that really supports the supply of these seedling. This technology requires media, include Murashige and Skoog (MS) media. But this media is expensive, therefore need to lookfor alternative inexpensive materials that can substitute some MS media. The purpose of this study was to find out how much MS media can be substituted with coconut water (CW) and complementary fertilizers (CF) which resulted in growth and morphogenesis that were not different from 100% MS. The research was carried out using RAL: Factor Coconut water 3 levels namely: 0, 20 and 40%; The second factor Complementary fertilizer 0, and 2g/l. It consists of 5 replications and each replication consists of 2 bottles so there were 210 experimental units. The results showed that the use of 20% coconut water combined with complementary fertilizers on chrysanthemum varieties Suryandari; show significantly better growth than Jayanti variety and Riri variety. The use of 40% coconut water without supplementary fertilizers showed significantly better growth for each variety compare to 100% MS as well as if additional fertilizers were added. The best growth was found in the treatment of 20% coconut water on the Suryandari variety combine with complementary fertilizer; also in 40% coconut water, without or in combination with complementary fertilizer of the suryandary variety. And treatment 40% coconut water combine with CF of Riri Variety.
