In this study, the effect of different temperature and humidity content of rooting medium on rooting percentage of black mulberry hard wood cutting was investigated. For this purpose, different temperature and humidity contents were applied. In the result of the study, the effect of interaction of temperature x humidity and temperature on rooting ratio was not significant. On the other hand, humidity content caused significant changes on rooting percentage. The highest rooting ratio (63,11%) was observed in cutting planted in medium with 40% humidity. The lowest rooting percentages were obtained from two other media contained higher humidity compared to medium with 40% humidity. Both temperature and humidity treatment caused significant changes in root length. Among humidity treatment, 80% humidity produced the longest roots. The longest roots were obtained from 22°C of basal heating treatment. In term of the number of root per cutting, significant difference was not found among humidity treatments while temperature treatment caused significant changes. The highest root number per cutting was observed in cutting planted at 22°C.
