Malita FM cayenne pepper has been developed as a superior product in Gorontalo since 2008, its cultivation is considered to provide more opportunities for farmers than other types of chillies, for that it requires fertilizer that can be used as an alternative to growth of Malita FM chili. In this study using rice washing wastewater which is used as liquid fertilizer for the growth of Malita FM cayenne pepper because it contains nutrients nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium which are still needed by plants. The purpose of this study was to describe the results of the growth of FM malita chilli plants after being given liquid organic fertilizer of rice washing wastewater with observational parameters: plant height, number of leaves, leaf length and leaf width. The method in this study used an experimental method using RAL (Completely Randomized Design) with 2 treatments that were repeated 5 times so that a total of 10 experiments were obtained. The treatments are: P0 (concentration 0% POC water rice water) and P1 (concentration 100% POC rice water). The results of the research data have been analyzed descriptively showing that the provision of rice water for plant height, number of leaves, leaf length and leaf width in P1 (100% concentration of rice water POC) provides the fastest growth compared to P0 (concentration of 0% water POC for rice water) control treatment.
