Applicable to all types of cultivation?from agriculture to horticulture and ornamental gardens to legal cannabis propagation?Teaming with Fungi reveals the key role mycorrhizal fungi play in growing successful plants.
One of a series of 3 books by Gardening Wizard Jeff Lowenfils, this is an important guide to mycorrhizae (a fungus which grows in association with the roots of a plant in a symbiotic or mildly pathogenic relationship) and the role they play in agriculture, horticulture, and hydroponics.
