Insects attacked agricultural crops and carries plant diseases lead to damage the crops and decrease income of the farmers. The best control of this problem is to promote organic insecticide. Derris elliptica is a climbing leguminous plant has rotenone substances used as organic insecticide to control insects attacked the agricultural crops. This plant could be planted by use of cuttings, however there is no study on the specific soil media favored on the growth performance of Derris elliptica cuttings. Hence this study on response of Derris elliptica cuttings to different soil media was conducted. The objectives of this study were determined the percent survival of the cuttings, length of shoots and number of roots produced as affected by the different soil media. The study was laid out in a Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD). Results of the study revealed that the soil media 25% garden soil + 75% sand, 50% garden soil + 25% rice hull + 25% sand and 100% garden soil were significantly favored to the percent survival, length of shoots and number of roots of Derris elliptica cuttings.
