A pot experiment was carried out to study effects of planting Cyphomandra betacea seedlings after mulching with four tolerant plants straws (Digitaria sanguinalis, Clinopodium confine, Plantago asiatica and Ranunculus sieboldii) on soil nutrients under cadmium stress. The results showed that all tolerant plants straws could improve the content of soil nutrients in varying degrees. And the content of alkaline nitrogen, available phosphorus, available potassium and organic matter in cadmium contaminated soil was highest among all treatments by mulching with P. asiatica straw. Therefore, planting C. betacea seedlings after mulching with P. asiatica straw in cadmium contaminated soil could effectively increase soil available nutrients content.
