Gloriosa superba Lindl. Contains colchicines in all part of it’s plant, especially in it’s tuber, 0.1 – 0.8 %. The substance is often to be used as the anti-mitosis agent to induce polyploiy cell. The objective of the research is to study and to determine the effect of concentration extract of Gloriosa sp. Tuber causing the mitosis inhibition and producing the polyploidy cells of Allium sp. root. The research is arranged in completely randomized design comprising of four different concentration of tuber extract; 25%, 50%, 75%, 100, and control and repeated 5 times. The data is analyzed using ANOVA the continued by LSD at α = 5 %. The result of study shows that the extract of Gloriosa sp. Tuber inhibits the cell mitosis of Allium sp. root. The inhibition effect increases with the concentration treatment appeared in the decrease in mitosis index. However this result is not constant. The concentration of 50 % in effective enough to induce the formation of polyploidy cells in Allium cepa. Keywords: colchines, Gloriosa superba, and mitosis
