<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title><jats:p>The aim of this study was to evaluate the <jats:italic>Scabiosa ochroleuca</jats:italic> suitability for growth on heavy metals contaminated substrate obtained as a result of Zn–Pb ores exploitation and their processing. Three variants of cultivation were tested in vegetative hall conditions: post-flotation wastes (control), wastes enriched with either mineral fertilisation or with sewage sludge. The possibility of future direct use of the studied species on post-flotation settling pond was determined on the basis of biometric measurements and analysis efficiency of photosynthetic apparatus, that is, pigments content and ...
