The research is used Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with five treatments NaCl level concentration, ie P1 Without NaCl/Control, P2 (0.5% concentration) P3 (concentration of 1%), P4 (1.5% concentration) and P5 (concentration of 2%). Parameters measured were percentage growth, plant height, leaf number, stem diameter, plant fresh weight and dry weight of plants. The results showed salinity level significantly affected all parameters observed. A salt concentration of 1% is the maximum saline tolerance conditions for growth acacia.
