An experiment based on randomized completely blocks design was conducted to investigate the impact of peanut shelles compost as the growth medium of Camellia. The different ratios of peanut shelles compost (PSC) containing control (without PSC), 20, 40, 60 and 100% v/v of PSC were used. Five treatments, every treatment at 3 replicates and 15 plots were used for experiment. The rooted cuttings of Camellia were planted and periodic watering was performed 2 times per week. After 5 months, the plants growth indices were measured. Results showed that the increase of PSC in the planting bed was led to increase in the growth indices of Camellia plant as compared with control. The growth of plant was better at 40% PSC, but using 100% PSC decreased the growth.
