This study was done to recognize the capacity of H.verticellata for different concentrations of lead element in lab aqueous ecosystem. The concentrations of 10, 20 and 30 ppm were used in three replications for each concentration for 30 days. The results showed that the plant can remove 30 ppm of Pb.  Significant differences were found in removing capacity by plant for Pb, in all concentrations 10, 20, 30 ppm during experiment period. There were accumulation in the root more than the stem and was root > leaf > stem respectively. The highest removal ratio for Pb in the root was 10.25ppm, 9.18ppm in the leaf   and the lowest removal ratio was 8.01ppm in the concentration 30ppm for30 days.

Keywords: H.verticellata, Heavy metal, phytoremediation
