Response of Eucalyptus camaldulensis seedlings was studied to different soil media. Six different soil media used were silt, clay, silt + clay (1:1), silt + FYM (1:1), clay + FYM (1:1) and silt + clay + FYM (1:1:1). The data revealed that different soil media had significant effect on all the studied parameters except root stem ratio. Maximum plant height (90.41 cm), number of leaves per plant (34.89), leaf area (29.34 cm2), stem thickness (0.521 cm), stem weight (10.11 g), stem volume (15.39 cm3), root thickness (0.603 cm), root weight (11.83 g), root volume (16.72 cm3) and root stem ratio (1.49) were observed in silt + clay. Maximum root length (39.56 cm) was recorded in silt + FYM. While, minimum plant height (71.22 cm), number of leaves per plant (22.33), leaf area (16.72 cm2), stem thickness (0.373 cm), stem weight (5.05 g), stem volume (9.39 cm3), root thickness (0.38 cm), root weight (5.78 g) and root volume (8.06 cm3) were obtained in silt and minimum root length (30.77 cm) and root-stem ratio (1.02) in clay. Hence the medium Silt + Clay is recommended for the best growth and development of Eucalyptus camaldulensis seedlings.
