Jiggery cake has been introduced into aquatic ecosystem, which could lead to potential negative consequences for the BOD and DO of that aquatic ecosystem. An artificial floating wetland planted with Vachha (Acorus calamus) and Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri) was evaluated. Brahmi and vachha also known as water hyssop and Sweet flag respectively. pH, EC, BOD and DO were monitored continuously for every 15 day interval on 2 months. In this study we assured the contaminant removal potential of two plant species Vacha (Acorus calamus) and Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri) from wastewater in artificial floating wetland system. Sweet flag and water hyssop removal wastewater BOD from 63-75%, and 67-81% respectively.
