Abstract

The Shorea leprosula wildlings needed a special storage box during transportation process in order that they still survive when planted in a nursery. In addition, they should be tended in a simple greenhouse to revive from stress because of extraction from original sites and transportation process. The aims of the research were to determine the longest time the wildlings can be kept in a storage box and the shortest time the wildlings should be tended in a simple greenhouse. The research applied two factors: duration of keeping the wildlings in a storage box and duration of tending the wildlings in a greenhouse. The two factors were tested with a factorial in a completely randomized design. The Least Significance Difference (LSD) test was used for testing the comparison effects among treatments of the two factors. The results showed that the growth of the wildlings was significantly affected by the two factors applied. The longest time the wildlings can be kept in a storage box was 3-5 days, while the shortest time the wildlings should be tended in a simple greenhouse was 15 days.
