Abstract: 
Silicon is a non-essential element with bene[1]cial effects reported for several crops. The main goal of this experiment was to investigate the effects of silicon (Si), on growth and physiological characteristics of Persian Petunia. For this, a factorial trial based on completely randomized design was conducted with 4 levels of Si (0, 50, 100 and 150 mg L-1), in two growth stages (4-6 and 8-10 leave) with 4 replications. The experiment was done in a greenhouse. Si was applied via foliar spray once a two week before the flowering stage. Si increased flower diameter, flower tube length and leaf area by 35, 24 and 52 percent compare to control, respectively. Si at 50 and 100 mg L-1 concentrations also increased Flowering rate by 14 and 9 percent in comparison to control. Photosynthesis and maximum quantum efficiency of PSII (Fv/Fm) ratio were also increased with Si. Flowering rate and leaf area of 8-10 leaf plants were higher than 4-6 leaf plants. Interactions between Si concentrations and growth stages for the measured traits like flower diameter, flowering rate, flower tube length, leaf area, photosynthesis, Fv/Fm ratio, stomatal conductance and chlorophyll index, were not statistically significant. Generally Si improved growth and physiological characteristics of petunia.
