Abstract—The objective of this research was to study the effect of different kinds of organic compounds derived from agricultural waste and municipal solid waste with phosphate bio-fertilizer (Barvar 2) on uptake of elements (zinc, iron, manganese and cupper) and some physiological attributes of ivy geranium (Pelargonium peltatum). This study was carried out based on a factorial experiment with two factors of Barvar 2 at two levels (non-application and application) and different media including garden soil, sand with a variety of organic compounds on randomized complete blocks design (RCBD) in 16 treatments, 4 replications, 64 experimental plots and 256 plants. Results showed that the interactions effects of both factors were significant on all traits. Generally, the results of this study showed that the application of organic compounds with Barvar 2 increased the ability of micro-nutrient uptake by plants. The use of Barvar 2 with media containing a variety of organic compounds such as sand + tea waste compost + cocopeat + water tank soil and garden soil + sand + municipal solid waste compost + water tank soil had greater impact on those traits. The measured media characteristics of sand + tea waste compost + cocopeat + water spreading soil were in desirable and appropriate level with the standard media in the ornamental plants. In general, the use of Barvar 2 along with this substrate could be effective in providing micro-nutrients for growing of ivy geranium.
