Efforts to increase the productivity of Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin Benth) require appropriate efforts, including by seeking maximum growth. This study aims to see the effect of organic fertilizer application on plant height, number of leaves, N, P and K nutrient content in increasing the growth of patchouli plants. This research was conducted according to Completely Randomized Design (CRD) 4x4. The treatment used four types of organic fertilizers, namely: Without Fertilizer (Control = Po), Compost (P1), Manure (P2), and Guano (P3). Each was repeated four times. Organic fertilizer is given at a rate of 300 grams per polybag at the start of planting and the second stage at 1.5 months after planting (MAP) at the same rate. Data were analyzed using analysis of variance (ANOVA) at a significance level of α=5%. The results showed that the application of organic fertilizers had a significant effect at the age of 60 DAP, 75 DAP and 90 DAP on the increase in the number of leaves. Compost shows the best results. The application of compost had a significant effect on increasing the nutrient content of N. Meanwhile, manure showed a significantly different effect on increasing the content of all the nutrients tested (N, P and K). So, manure shows the best results on plant nutrient content
