The glass lettuce was made as material, the effect of different concentrations (0, 50, 100, 150, 200 μmol·L-1) of exogenous melatonin on growth, antioxidant enzyme activity and osmotica of lettuce seedlings under salt stress was studied. The results showed that the root length, stem diameter, and dry fresh weight of lettuce sprayed with melatonin were higher than those of the control. Within a certain concentration range, the activities of antioxidant enzymes POD, SOD and CAT increased with the increase of melatonin concentration. The soluble protein content increased but the MDA content decreased, which maintaining the balance of intracellular reactive oxygen metabolism and preventing membrane lipid peroxidation. Therefore, spraying the exogenous melatonin could increase the resistance of lettuce to salt stress, and the best effect was obtained when the concentration was 100 μmol·L-1.
