The application of the phytoremediation on treating palm oil mill final discharge essentially should give a good impression to the condition of the downstream water content after being treated naturally by the aquatic plant. The different type of the aquatic plant that were applied can give the different result to the downstream water content. Other than application of the remediation, there has been proved faster affect and result nevertheless they had a couple of problems rather than the phytoremediation method. Then, as the other alternative to treat he palm oil mill final discharge water is with natural application such as phytoremediation that can help the palm oil mill industry to treat the effluent from the mill with naturally. This experiment was conducted to look after the consequences of the POME condition by applying different type of aquatic plant that had in Malaysia. The sample of the POME was collected at downstream stages of the palm oil mill effluent. The experiment was conducted at irrigation workshop in UiTM Jasin. Furthermore, the data collected has been recoded every day for the parameter of pH. total dissolve solid, salinity, dissolve oxygen, percentage dissolve oxygen and conductivity within the 15 days. Data analysis was conducted using SPSS and Microsoft Excel application. The results that obtained in this study indicate that the quantity of aquatic plant and the type of aquatic life applied is still not compatible for treating the downstream water from the palm oil mill final discharge. Further research is needed for the better result that can be manipulated by the oil palm mill industry especially at Malaysia.
