ectomycorrhizal fungi

Post  pascal37 on Sat Oct 23, 2010 9:29 am

For inoculation we have to produce mycelia....

Nice association :
Pinaceae : all Suillus, Hebeloma cylindrosporum; Laccaria bicolor/laccata
all deciduous : Laccaria Laccata, Hebeloma crustuliniforme, suillus luteus


a solution for ectomycorrhizal fungi (seedlings, after air layering ...):

a fungi : here a Suillus luteus for association with Pine and others tree


cut the top and put some pieces in a box with water and honey (-4%, PH 5 to 6)



DAY 4 :
in another box


DAY 5:


DAY 6 :


DAY 7:


DAY 9:


DAY 10 /



The inoculum is now ready, fungus colonization host plants' roots in several days !.....wait please !

A different approach to the one I use and very interesting. It must be stressed that the fungus used must be one that is associated with the particular tree species.

I just place a pinch of the soil from a pot that has a healthy colony into the rootball of the same tree that has none. This usually works for my trees. Many do however develop a colony with no intervention from us as the fungal spores are airborne.

I look forward to seeing your result.

yes it's a solution, but for an air layered tree or seedlings you have not necessary the good fungi in the pot (optimal fungi)

it's the solution...and you can introduce several fungi in the pot.(suillus +laccaria +hebeloma for example)
