Suren (Toona sureni Merr.) is a tree thatbelongs to the Meliaceae family. The propagation of suren is still difficult to do both generatively and vegetatively conventionalmethodssuch as cutting or grafting. The obstacle of suren propagation is slightly low seed productivity. Moreover, the In-vitro technique is an efficient and effective mass propagation technique for plants that can be continuously carried out to produce superior, equal, and many plants in a short time. For the suren growth, it is important to support effective tissue culture media with the addition of growth regulators of kinetin. Then, the data were analyzed by Microsoft Excel (Microsoft Corporation) software. The results showed that M2 media (1/2 MS + Kinetin 1 ppm) was the best media in tissue culture plant toward the germination time, number of shoots, number of leaves, plant height, length of leaf, and percentage of live explants
