MSG is a sodium salt of glutamic acid. MSG is crystalline, white, and soluble in water. One brand of MSG (Monosodium glutamate) is Aji No Moto which can be used as organic fertilizer in plants, because it contains elements of N, P, and K which can accelerate plant growth. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of Monosodium glutamate on the growth of Allium sativum tubers. This research was conducted in November 2018 until January 2019 at the Botanical Laboratory, Department of Biology, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, University of Lampung. The study was conducted using a Randomized Complete Design with MSG solution as the main factor consisting of 5 levels of concentration: 0% (control), 5%, 10%, 15%, and 20% as treatments. Each treatment was repeated 5 times, so that 25 units were obtained. Variables in this study were the number of leaves, leaf length, b closely dried leaves, tuber dry weight, chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b, and total chlorophyll. The homogeneity of variety is determined based on the Levene test at the level of 5%. Then proceed with analysis of variance at the 5% level, if there are differences between treatments then proceed with the Tukey test at the 5% level. The results obtained from this study, namely the administration of MSG solution in the growth of garlic tuber (Allium sativum L.) had no significant effect on the variable number of garlic leaves and dry weight of garlic tuber, but gave a significant effect on the longest length of garlic leaves , dry weight of garlic leaves, and chlorophyll a, b and total garlic leaves. So it can be concluded that the concentration of 10% is the best concentration for the growth of garlic bulbs.
