Cassava stem waste in Lampung Province has not been utilized to its maximum potential, so there is a need for an alternative treatment to process the cassava stem waste into a useful material. One way to do this is by turning the stem waste into an organic pot. There are several aims in this study, which are to design the composition of the raw materials and adhesives needed to develop organic pot for media to grow land variant of kangkung (Ipomea reptans Poir), second, to determine the physical properties of organic pots made from cassava stem waste raw material, coconut fiber, and tapioca adhesive. The raw materials used are cassava stem powder, coconut fiber, and tapioca adhesive with three levels of treatment, namely P1( 60% cassava steam, 10% coconut coir, 30% adhesive), P2 (50% cassava steam, 10% coconut coir, 40% adhesive), and P3 ( 50% cassava steam, 20% coconut coir, 30% adhesive). Research results from 15 Organic pots with 3 levels of treatment P1, P2, P3, based on physical characteristics and planting test of the three organic pot treatments, can be penetrated by roots and fully decomposed after 23 days and show good growth.
