The study of Vesicular and Arbuscular Mycorrhiza associated with an endemic plant Curcuma bhatii, known to occur only in Udupi District in Karnataka State, is carried out. Mycorrhizal spore count was 290 per 100 gm soil and the colonisation around the root was 95%. Vesicles and hyphae were present in the roots. Four mycorrhizal species, namely, Glomus aggregatum, G. glomerulatum, G. Multcaule and Sclerocystis pachycaulis were colonised around the roots.
