Eucheuma cottonii is widespread in coastal areas. The content of seaweed in the form of agar, carrageenan, and alginate causes seaweed to have an important meaning in industry. The problem currently faced is the lack of production of seaweed for industrial materials, caused by the lack of growth rate. The community's understanding is that the more weight the seedlings plant, the more yields will be obtained and the faster to harvest. But in reality, the less weight the seeds planted, the faster the rate of growth, so that the seeds needed are not so many and produce a lot of harvest. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of different initial seed weights on the growth rate of E. cottonii seaweed. This research is an experimental study, using a Completely Randomized Trial Design consisting of one factor and six replications. While the treatment used is the initial weight of different seedlings, (25 gr, 50 gr, 75 gr, and 100 gr). This research was conducted in the waters of Lamawalang District, Larantuka City, East Flores Regency. Data analysis technique used one-way ANOVA (one factor) with the Least Significant Difference Test level of 5%.
