MSG is glutamate acid which contains many elements of N (Nitrogen), P (Phosphorus), K (Potassium), and there is also the content of Na (Sodium) which can stimulate plant growth. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) solution on the growth of onion bulbs (Allium cepa L.). This research was conducted at the Botanical Laboratory of Biology, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, University of Lampung from November-December 2018. The study was conducted using a Completely Randomized Design (CRD), using MSG as a single factor with several levels of concentration: 0% (control), 5%, 10%, and 15% as treatment. The treatment was carried out with five replications so that 20 experimental units were obtained. The variables in this study were the number of shoots, number of leaves, leaf dry weight, and chlorophyll a content, chlorophyll b, and total chlorophyll. Variety homogeneity was determined based on the Levene test, then an analysis of variance was carried out at the level of 5%, if there were differences between treatments then a further test was carried out with the LSD test at the 5% level. The results showed that MSG solution had an effect on the growth of onion bulbs, the effect of which was evident in the variables of chlorophyll a and total while the other variables had the same effect. The administration of 10% MSG solution which effectively affects the growth of onion bulbs.
