The study used an experimental method with a completely randomized design factorial models. The study consisted of two factors: factors of organic fertilizer and lime dolomite with five repetitions with a number of plant samples as many as 100 plants. The measured parameters include length midrib, stem diameter and stem height were analyzed using SAS IX. The research proves that organic fertilizer dose of 300 g and 35 g dolomite lime can increase the growth of palm in the nursery.
