Contaminated nutrients in wastewater is critical problem of worldwide. The aim of this study was nitrogen and phosphorus treatment from dormitory wastewater of Srinakharinwirot University Ongkaruk by Acrostichumaureum L. and Eucalyptus globulus Labill. The plants were cultured in the pot and treated wastewater for 4 cycles. The differed plant weight was compared the efficiency in nitrogen and phosphorus treatment. The result found that Eucalyptus globulus Labill which is perennial plant had better efficiency in nitrogen and phosphorus treatment than Acrostichumaureum L. which is aquatic plant. The plant could grow well in wastewater and removed nutrients until passed standard criteria for short time. Moreover, plant biomass increased after nitrogen and phosphorus treatment for one month. These results showed the sustainable system in nutrients treatment from wastewater. Eucalyptus globulus Labill is new selected plant to remove nutrients and suit to apply for nitrogen and phosphorus treatment from wastewater.
