The objective of this research was to investigate the population of Lobaria in Cibodas Botanical Garden, Indonesia.The mapping of Lobaria was conductedon 3724 trees through exploration method and the samples were collected from whole tree trunk surface area with the height of 0-2 m. The transplantations used 20 thalli of 1 cm x 1 cm with 10 thalli for each species. Only two species of Lobaria were found i.e., Lobaria retigera and L.pulmonaria with 16 total thalli and 0.14% of frequency (5 of 3724 trees). The thallus number and frequency of L. retigera were higher (11 thalli; 0.11%) than L. pulmonaria (5 thalli; 0.03%) but smaller total coverage (79.74 cm2 per m2 of tree trunk surface area) than L. pulmonaria (117.67 cm2 per m2 of tree trunk surface area). Only 11 thalli of transplants (55%) were established succesfully and growth with 4 thalli (20%) of L. retigera and 7 thalli (35%) of L. pulmonaria. Lobaria transplantation was succesfully. Increasing of lobule coverage in L. pulmonaria was 445.89% over 12 months transplantation, but L. retigera was only 33.93%. Increasing of thallus coverage in L. pulmonaria was 104.03% during 12 months transplantation, but L. retigera was only 0.81%.
