Treatment of periodsubculture is one way to get the explants with optimal growth.The research aimed to determine theappropriate sub culture period to obtain the micropropagation of Puar Tenangau (Elettariopsis sp.) the best asplantlets. The research was carried out in Plant Tissue Culture Laboratory, Department of Agroecotechnology, Faculty ofAgriculture, University of North Sumatera, Medan from November 2012 to August 2013. The research used CompletelyRandomized Design with 1 (one) factor that sub culture period with 4 (four) treatment , which are : 0 week, 2 weeks, 4 weeks,and 6 weeks after culturing from 10 weeks of incubation.
