Other than water, fertilizer, high yielding variety, crops need additional input to get better yield. The application of plant hormone (phytohormone) is a common practice to improve the quality and quantity of horticultural crop product. Although could boost crop yield and quality, commercial plant hormone is considered very expensive. A cheap and natural phytohormone, yet under-explored, is moringa leaf extract. The objectives of the study were to quantify the effect of (1) the concentration of moringa leaf extract, (2) the frequency of moringa leaf extract application, and the (3) combined effect of moringa leaf extract concentrations and spraying frequencies on the growth and yield of red hot chilly pepper (Capsicum annuum L.). The research was done in West Lampung from August to December 2008. Experiments were arranged in a completely randomized design with three replicates. The first treatment was three concentrations of moringa leaf extract, i.e. 0 g, 10 g, and 20 g fresh leaf/100 ml ethanol 80%. The second treatment was two spraying frequencies, i.e. 3 and 5 times. Results showed that the concentration of 20g/100 ml ethanol improved plant growth (i.e. plant height, leaf greenness, leaf nitrogen, and plant biomass) and chilly pepper yield in terms of fruit number, weight, and size. Combined effect of extract of 20g leaf/100 ml ethanol that sprayed 5 x increased chilly pepper plant biomass, fruit number, and fruit weight. Application of moringa leaf extract increased chilly pepper yield up to 30% over the yield
