Introduction: Arsenic contamination in soil and its environmental effects have been studied for its global impact around the globe. Materials and Methods: This study evaluated the role of five plant species collected from arsenic-contaminated sites in in vitro phytoremediation of arsenic and its correlation with rhizobacteria under hydroponic conditions using high-performance liquid chromatography -ICP. Results: Mimosa pudica showed the ability to uptake arsenic with/ without Rhizobium. Conclusion: It is concluded that rhizosphere microbiota helps plants to increase arsenic uptake and may be utilized as an efficient biological alternative in phytoremediation.
