I recall years ago reading an article on using a similar process to pull contaminated radioactive metals out of the ground. Seems quite a number of plants require metals to grow properly.
As much as the forced hype on IoT, I still feel TNBT (The next big thing) is bioelectronics. Since plants can pull the carbon out of CO2 to build structure, a method similar to FDM 3D printing using organics, should be able to lay down layers of Graphine or even possibly the diamond matrix.
