The experiment was carried out in the nursery of the Department of Horticulture College of Agricultural Studies, Sudan University of Science and Technology, Khartoum, Sudan, from March 2018 to August 2019, to see how different levels of Sulphur fertilizer (0.0, 0.2, 0.4, 0.8, and 1.6g/plant) affected plant growth and flowering. The experiment was set up in a completely randomized design with four replications in each plant, with data collected on six parameters at 40, 125, 215, and 300 days after application. Maximum treatments had a significant effect on various parameters over the control treatments. Application of sulphur 1.6 g/plant delayed flower initiation in treated plants than in those receiving low levels of this nutrition. Sulphur application 1.6g/plant promoted vegetative growth, while moderated dose 0.8 g/plant increased number of flowers per plant.
