The effect of Gibberellic Acid (GA3) on Jerusalem cherry (Solanum pseudocapsicum L.) was evaluated at pot cultivation conditions. This study was performed in factorial test based on complete random design plan and 4 repeats with 12 treatments. The main factor was included spraying, drip and spraying + drip. Secondary factor was included concentrations of GA3 at 0, 100, 200 and 400 mg.L-1 levels. Result showed that GA3 concentration and its usage methods had significant effect on (P
