The objective of the study was to examined the effects of chemical fertilizer on the growth rate of Thyrsostachys siamensis Gamble during January 2020 to June 2020, Treatments were compared between non-fertilizer (control) and applied chemical fertilizer, applied 46-0-0 for 20 g/pot/times, applied 16-16-16 for 20 g/pot/times, applied 25-7-7 for 20 g/pot/times, applied 46-0-0 with 25-7-7 each 10 g/pot/times and applied 16-16-16 with 25-7-7 each 10 g/pot/times. The trial was arranged in a completely randomized design (CRD) at confidence coefficient 95 %, with 3 replications, 1 replication per pot. The new shoot, and culm diameter were recorded. Finally, EC and pH values of growing media were analyzed. The results showed that the application of chemical fertilizer 46-0- 0 for 20 g/pot/times resulted promoted the highest number of new shoots. Moreover, the application of chemical fertilizer 16-16-16 for 20 g/pot/times resulted in the highest diameter.
