- Experiments were conducted on the response of Plectranthus forsteri ‘Nico’ to NaCl. Plants were grown in pots of 1.5 dm³ and 0.15 dm³ water solution of NaCl at concentrations 0, 5, 10, 15, 20 g dm⁻³ in 2011 and 0, 10, 20, 30, 40 g dm⁻³ in 2012 were applied one time in the beginning of experiment. Sodium chloride applied at 10-40 g NaCl·dm⁻³ water, reduced plant growth and values of SPAD readings. It may be stated that Plectranthus forsteri ‘Nico’ plants are tolerant to medium concentrations of sodium chloride (5-20 g NaCl·dm⁻³ water) and therefore can be planted in flowerbeds in urbanized areas.
