Have you any experience in using mycorrhizal fungi in container culture? I mainly grow annuals in containers, primarily Ipomoea nil and I. purpurea. I have read that many species need the fungal symbiosis to survive, such as pine and other evergreen and hardwood species. I do know that disturbance of soil is deleterious to the soil fungi, as well as using too high P fertilizers. I have been using mycorrhizal fungi as a root dip when transplanting my young vine plants the past few years, and have been keeping the containers undisturbed from year to year. I use a low P fish product fertilizer and the vines seem to thrive and grow well.
I was just wondering about your thoughts whether there has been any studies you're aware of on this topic. Thanks for your views.
