Abstract: The objective of this research was to determine the growth of some clones of cocoa seeds on peat soils and red-yellow podzolic (RYP). This study has been carried out in the experimental garden of Agriculture Faculty, University of Riau from February to May 2014. This research arranged experimentaly using completely randomized design (CRD), consisted of 6 treatments and each treatment was repeated 4 times then obtained 24 experimental units. Treatment in the test was K1P: TSH 858 Clone on RYP soil; K1G : TSH 858 Clone on Peat soil; K2P: ICCRI 01 Clone on RYP soil; K2G : ICCRI 01 Clone on Peat soil; K3P: ICCRI 03 Clone on RYP soil; K3G: ICCRI 03 Clone on Peat soil. Parameters measured were seeds height, leaves number, stump diameter and leaf area. Data were analyzed statistically using ANOVA and further test followed by Duncan's New Multiple Range Test (DNMRT) at the level of 5%. The results showed that treatment of clones in some growth media significantly influence the parameters of stump diameter and leaf area. The results also showed that treatment TSH 858 clones on peat soil showed good growth compared with other treatments.
