An experiment was carried out variation the efficiency of yeast extract at 1, 2 or 3 g/L and amino acids at 1, 2 or 3 cm 3 /L as a foliar application for each to improve vegetative growth and some of chemical content of pot moringa plants (two species) Moringa oleifera, and Moringa ovalifolia. Amino acids at 3 cm 3 /L was more effective than most of the other treatments for increasing plant height, leaf numbers, fresh and dry weights of plants, total chlorophyll and carotene of leaves and some
