Azolla microphylla and Pistia stratiotes were type of plants which used as alternative to remove pollutant from contaminated water. This study aimed to determine efficiency of Azolla microphylla and Pistia stratiotes as phytoremediator of Pb. These plants were grown in 14 days under hydroponic system with type of plants were Azolla microphylla, Pistia stratiotes, Azolla microphylla and Pistia stratiotes, Pb concentrate (0, 5, 10, and 15 ppm). Analyze method of Pb used AAS (Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer) and the wet biomass calculation. The data were analyzed with Statistic Program 20th Edition to calculate Anova and continued Tukey test with 5% of real level or 95% of confidence level. Efficieny of plant as a phytoremediator consecutively from low to high was A. microphylla>P. stratiotes and A. microphylla+P. stratiotes combination, which value of BCF>1 and TF<1. Capability of plant to remediate was also supported by growth from wet biomass, which biomass growth of plant that has concentrate high Pb metal was higher than plant that has concentrate low Pb metal. This result showed significantly difference in plant organ with various concentrate that has been used, which composition of Pb metal in roots was higher than leaves.
