How long does it take before the symbiotic relationship between mycorrhizae and a plant occurs?
The establishment of a symbiotic relationship varies depending on the type of plant, the size of the root system, how close to the roots the mycorrhizal fungi have been applied, temperature variations, etc.
The symbiosis generally begins a few days after contact between the mycorrhizal fungi and the plant’s root system has been established.
Aren’t mycorrhizae already present in soil? Why add it?
Soil disturbance by residential construction and intensive farming practices have considerably reduced the populations of naturally occurring mycorrhizal fungi in the soil. In most cases, their natural presence today isn’t enough to enhance plant growth.
