This study analyze as much as 17 species of aquatic plants either from fresh water, brackish water and marine plants. Results indicated that addition of soil conditioner from aquatic plants significantly increased organic contain either in sandy or clay soil (p<0,05). In sandy soil, the highest organic contain (917%) was provided by brackish water plants, Najas marina, whereas in Clay soil was provided by marine plant, Gracilaria verrucosa (220%)
