    Due to its aesthetic values and economic benefits, the Production of potting ornamental plants for home use and marketing purposes are rising from time to time and moving a billion of dollars of worth around the globe. Thus, the production of these potting ornamental plants needs careful management practices starting from its early stage of development to throughout of its lifetime in order to give a beautification and marketable value. Among the crucially important practices of the potting ornamental plant, production is controlling of the plant to the desired height. This practice can be done either by planting the ornamental plants in to the appropriate pot sizes, which have the ability to limit the plant root development and consequently reduces the nutrient uptake by limiting the root system of the plant and/or by using of plant growth retardant chemicals, which have the ability ..
