This research was conducted in unheated greenhouse at Ege University, Faculty of Agriculture, Department of Horticulture in autumn–winter growing season. In the study, bulbs (1.5–2 cm circumference) of Galanthus elwesii Hook were used and snow drop bulbs were cultivated with soilless culture method. The study was conducted to find out the effects of different substrates (perlite, zeolite, pumice, sand, peat, coco peat and bark) on Galanthus elwesii Hook's bulb circumference, bulb weight, daughter bulb ratio, plant height, leave height. In harvesting time, the highest bulb circumference and bulb weight were obtained in coco peat (5.1 cm and 2.2 g) and peat (4.9 cm ve 2.0 g). The highest daughter bulb ratio (43%) and plant height (22.7 cm) were investigated in coco peat.
