Lac insect (Laccifer lacca, Kerr) can be deleloped because of lac production that are useful for vernis, electric industry, glue, varnish, cables, etc. Kesambi (Schleichera oleosa) is host plant of lac insect but field survey showed that Mangifera indica and Albizia chinensis around kesambi were also infested by lac insect and capable of producing lac. The aim of research was to obtain kind of plants other than kesambi that potentially could formed the most productive lac either in quantity or in quality. Descriptive method was used in this study. The results showed that several plants both annual and wild plants around kesambi were potential to be the alternative hosts for lac insect. Those several plants were mangga (Mangifera indica), sengon (Albizia chinensis), sonokling (Dalbergia latifolia), kaliandra (Calliandra calothyrsus), ara (Ficus carica), langgem (Caesalpinia decapetala), boran (Pueraria montana), tempulat (Arctium minus), telean/tembelek (Lantana camara), kesembung, lengkukun, and kentawong, but only Mangifera indica, Albizia chinensis, Dalbergia latifolia, Calliandra calothyrsus, Ficus carica, Caesalpinia decapetala, and Pueraria montana could produced lac. Lac produced by those plants were varied.
