Low cost adsorbent from Amorphophallus campanulatus skin has successfully synthesized to remove calcium and magnesium ions in the syntetic hard water. A. campanulatus skin were dried, crushed into powder form and modified by acid modification. A batch experiment with various parameters was used in this research. Various isotherm models were applied to fit the experimental data. Adsorption capacity of Ca and Mg on KB and KM adsorbents in 100 ppm solution respectively 10,85 mg/g, 27,64 mg/g, 1,79 mg/g and 20,1 mg/g. It was found out that the adsorption behavior of hard mineral ions by adsorbents match well with the Dubinin Radushkevich isotherm model. Based on the result, it can be concluded that a acid modified A. campanulatus skin is quite potential as a new low cost adsorbent which is expected to be applied to Indonesian groundwater which have high degree of hardness.
