[Abstract]: We have attempted to grow fungi from pelotons isolated from roots of the myco-heterotrophic orchid species Dipodium variegatum on 3 different growth media. As well, we have analysed the fungal DNA within roots of the orchid using ITS-PCR analysis, cloning and molecular sequencing.
Fungi failed to grow out from pelotons isolated from plant roots. ITS rDNA sequences were successfully amplified and cloned from roots of three orchid plants. Comparison of these sequences with ITS rDNA in GenBank revealed that the fungal community of D. variegatum roots consists of Russula spp. and non-mycorrhizal soil Deuteromycetes.
