In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

Phytoremediation is implemented by establishing a plant or community of plants that have been selected to provide the required remediation mechanisms. The technology exploits the natural hydraulic and metabolic processes of plants, and thus is passive and solar driven. The technology can be used in combination with mechanical treatment methods or as a "stand alone" treatment method.
