Mung bean (Vigna radiata) is extensively cultivated in tropical and sub-tropical Asia and a resource of seed protein. It is also easily adapted to various environments. Fertilizer has an important role in increasing production and quality of crop cultivation. The fertilizers must meet national standards and their effectiveness must be proven. The purpose of this study is to analyse the use of vetiver waste fertilizer as growth catalyst on mung bean. This research method used completely randomized design (CRD) and descriptive qualitative method. This research was conducted by observing three types of sample, namely the mung bean without fertilizer, half-decomposed fertilizer, and decomposed vetiver waste fertilizer. The sample of mung bean without fertilizer was used as a reference for standardization of mung bean growth. In addition, this study discusses the difference of using vetiver waste fertilizer on plant physical characteristics. The results showed that from the samples taken, mung bean with half-decomposed fertilizer were more stunted than the other two samples. Meanwhile, from the calculation using CRD is obtained that value F calculate < F tables. It means that even though special treatment is given, it does not have significant effect on the Mung bean growth due to it will continue to grow even if there is no fertilizer application. However, plants with decomposed vetiver waste fertilizer have rapid growth with stronger plant physical characteristics. It is indicated by more water contained in the mung bean with decomposed vetiver waste fertilizer. From these results, it is shown that the use of vetiver waste fertilizer is effective as catalyst in the growth of mung bean. This research is expected to be a reference for future research. It can be concluded that vetiver waste fertilizer can stimulate the growth of mung bean and potentially effective for the development of other plants.
