I haven't used any inoculations of mycorrhizal fungi because containers are rather inhospitable to the fungi when they would do the most good. I see plenty of evidence of the fungi in early spring when I do my bonsai repots, without any effort on my part to inoculate, and again in late fall if I check to satisfy my curiosity, but I haven't seen any evidence of its presence during the warm months when plants are putting on the most growth and/or storing energy for the winter's rest. Perhaps it's the way I approach container culture, but somehow I feel it's related primarily to temperature flux, but ymmv.
