Young pine seedlings were inoculated with mycelial cultures of 8 fungi, and basidiospore cultures of 4 fungi. Four months later distinctive mycorrhizas had been formed by all 4 spore cultures and by 5 of the mycelial cultures. At 10 months one further mycelial culture had given rise to distinctive mycorrhizas. However, by that time contamination between treatments, or from outside, was at a higher level. Survival of outplanted seedlings after 6 months was generally poor, but was slightly greater in some treatments.
