Abstract Seven halophytic plants were studied with regard to their level of salinity tolerance. Avicennia marina, Atriplex nummularia, Batis maritima, Nitraria retusa, Limoneastrum monopetalum, Sesuvium verrucosum, Spartina alterniflora were grown in concrete pounds filled with coastal sand and watered with 25, 50, 75 and 100% seawater. Two of the seven species, Nitraria retusa and Atriplex nummularia did not survive in our experimental setup. For the other five we measured growth structure and dry matter. Mineral content of soil water and plant dry matter were analysed. We found that all five species grow in full strength seawater in spite of low nutrient content of the irrigation water. The results obtained encourage us to undertake pilot field experiment with saline irrigation of different kinds.
