Phytoremediation of a dissolved nitrate by using Louisiana Irises (Iris Professor Claude).
The purpose of this experiment is to determine if the Louisiana Iris (Iris Professor Claude) can be used for Phytoremediation phy·to·re·me·di·a·tion
The use of plants and trees to remove or neutralize contaminants, as in polluted soil or water.

2. made contaminated by adding infective or radiographic materials.
3. an infective surface or object. waterways The list of waterways is a link page for any river, canal, estuary or firth.
PPM - Portable Pixmap of nitrate was added to each tank, 100ppmN, to tank A, 250ppmN, to tank B, and 500ppmN to tank C, and tank D was the control. The findings did not support the experimental hypothesis. The ppm in each tank did not considerably change. One variable that did change was the health of the plants. There was a drastic change in most of the plant health color, leaf numbers, and root growth of plants grown in Nitrate solution. The control variable remained the same.
