  1. Note: T1 = water, T2 = kaolin powder without bacterium, T3 = talc powder without bacterium, T4 = molasses and humic acid without bacterium, T5 = talc powder with bacterium, T6 = molasses and humic acid with bacterium, T7 = kaolin powder with bacterium. Means with different letters are significantly different from each other as determined by least significant difference (LSD) tests at p < 0.05. These characteristics were measured and calculated after 5 weeks of plant growth
