Potential of Mauritius Hemp (Furcraea gigantea Vent.) for the Remediation of Chromium Contaminated Soils

The present study was conducted to evaluate the ability of a high biomass producing, drought tolerant succulent plant Mauritius hemp (Furcraea gigantea Vent.) for its tolerance to different levels of Cr (0, 25, 50, 100 and 200 mg Cr kg soil(-1)) and its potential for phytoremediation purposes. Based on the data on inhibition of the growth of plants with Cr, tolerance index and grade of growth inhibition, it was observed that the plant could tolerate up to 50 mg Cr kg (-1) soil. Absorption of Cr…

The present study was conducted to evaluate the ability of a high biomass producing, drought tolerant succulent plant Mauritius hemp (Furcraea gigantea Vent.) for its tolerance to different levels of Cr (0, 25, 50, 100 and 200 mg Cr kg soil(-1)) and its potential for phytoremediation purposes. Based on the data on inhibition of the growth of plants with Cr, tolerance index and grade of growth inhibition, it was observed that the plant could tolerate up to 50 mg Cr kg (-1) soil. Absorption of Cr from soil to plant and its translocation into plant tissues were discussed in terms of bio concentration factor (BCF), transfer factor (TF), and translocation efficiency (TE%). Cr was mainly accumulated in the roots and exclusion of Cr was found to be the principal physiological tolerance mechanism followed by a marked increase in proline, ascorbic acid, total free amino acids in the leaf tissue and malic acid in the rhizosphere samples to counter Cr stress. Based on the tissue concentration of Cr (< 300 μg g(-1) in the leaves and TF<1), it was concluded that, Furcraea gigantea could not be considered a hyperaccumulator and therefore unsuitable for phytoextraction of Cr. Nevertheless, Furcraea gigantea could be a suitable candidate for phytostablization of Cr contaminated soils.

Keywords: ascorbic acid; chromium; mauritius hemp; phytoremediation; proline; tolerance index; total free amino acids.

So I’ve had a slight escapism problem with the since it was introduced into my life. Because I live in a state with it not being legal and I have noticed how much it holds me back I have been wanting to make the transition to cbd for my anxiety.

I have several questions on this topic. Most of the reason I smoked was to get sleep I take adhd meds and I have no desire to eat or sleep. Is cbd still a good alternative being that I have these problems or would people suggest others. Im really worried about getting in trouble due to having cbd because my job drug tests, and the smell is very similar to weed…

Suggestions would be much appreciated!
