The study was conducted under protective environment of Barangay Amunitan, Gonzaga Cagayan from October, 2018 until March, 2019. Generally, the study was established to determine the growth and survival of different mangrove species as influenced by rooting hormones. Specifically, the study aimed to determine the average germination rate of the seeds (%), average seedling emergence (%), average number of leaves, average plant height (cm), average root length (cm) and the cost per piece of propagules (Php). The Mangrove species and rooting hormones were the two factors evaluated in this study. Moreover, mangrove species were of varying types: (Xylocarpus granatum, Aegiceras corniculum and Brugueira pototan) and rooting hormones (auxin) resulting to six (6) treatment combinations replicated thrice. This study was a 3 x 2 factorial experiment under Complete Randomized Design (CRD). The result show that most of the parameters studied were significantly affected by the nature and specie of the cultivars particularly on the average germination rate (%) which is favorable to Brugueira pototan while the average number of leaves was significantly affected by Aegiceras spp. On the other hand, Xylocarpus granatum affects significantly the average plant height (cm) of the mangroves. Furthermore, in terms using rooting hormones auxin significantly affected the average plant height (cm) of the cultivars as well as the combined reaction of auxin and Aegiceras specie with regards to the average number of leaves.
