      According to Leopold (1963) and Suprijadi (1985), urine of cow contain auxin-a, auxin-b and Indole Acetic Acid. Asan herbivore cow eats plant tissues which contain auxin. Auxin is undigestable and will be excreted in urine. Research and Plantation Department Jember has proved quick dipping (10-15 second) of Coffeaarabica cuttings in urine of cowat 5% and 10% concentrations were able to stimulate rooting. The effect was equal to 3000 ppm and 4000 ppm IBA (Suprijadi, 1985). Chairani (1987) dipped Costusspciosus cuttings in urine of cow at 15% concentration for 15 seconds was able to root 96% of the cuttings. The research was conducted to find out the effect of cow urine on the rooting of Lemon tea cuttings.
