Musa acuminata cv. Berangan is a kind of edible bananas originating from Malaysia. This experiment was carried out to increase the banana populations as the main crops in urban areas. The height of Musa acuminata cv. Berangan can reach up to 2.5 - 3 m. In order to make banana suitable to be grown indoor, the height should be controlled to suit the environment in the building.This experiment is conducted to control it height by inhibiting the root formation. This study was aimed to explore the relationship between the growth rate and the exploitation of root systems. Three different amount of soil was filled into polybags of the same size in order to restrict the root growth in different soil density. Light levels are also reduced by placing the plant under black netting which decreased the light entry by 30%. The results show that there are differences between the growth rate of banana planted in different soil density. Further studies need to be conducted at longer duration to examine the effects of roots development and inhibition to further confirm these findings. The results obtained can be further used for the study of the growth response towards abiotic and biotic stress.
