The present study was performed to explore the potential of Alternanthera sessilis for remediation of toxic inorganic pollutants. Minimum inhibitory concentration was determined against inorganic pollutants lead (Pb). The minimum inhibitory concentration was observed. The plant was able to utilize lead at 1000ppm and also can resist toxic heavy metal in the polluted soil sites. The shoot and root length was higher in plant treated in 1000 ppm of lead than other treatment. The growth and metabolism of A. sessilis were affected variably by the heavy metal lead. Highest concentration of growth shows the withstanding capacity of the plant in the heavy metal contaminated soil.
