Abstract

Diplaziumesculentum is widely used as an edible plant and a medicinal plant in Malaysia and other regions worldwide. This study aimed to identify the soil properties (pH, EC, CEC,percentage clay content, and organic matter) that affect the heavy metal uptake in medicinal plant. The heavy metal concentrations (lead, iron, manganese, zinc, copper, and chromium) in the parts of D. esculentum (roots, rhizomes, young leaves, mature leaves, and fiddleheads) and soils where the plants grow were analyzed. The study was carried out in the UKM fern garden and TasikChini forest in Malaysia. The heavy metal concentrations were extracted using wet digestion method and determined by inductively coupled plasma spectroscopy ICP-MS. The heavy metals in the soil of TasikChini showed different values compared with those in the UKM fern garden. Correlation analysis showed that the properties of soil affected the concentrations of heavy metals in the soil and plant parts. Furthermore, many significant correlations were observed.
