We have achieved the symbiotic cultivation of an apparently achlorophyllous orchid, Epipogium roseum Lindl., with a mycorrhizal fungus isolated from an underground organ of this orchid. Although the seed germination rate was extremely low, subsequent growth from protocorm to flowering was induced in a medium containing volcanic soils and sawdust. Stolons elongated from each protocorm, and rhizomes were formed at certain intervals on the stolons. Some of the rhizomes developed into a coralloid… Expand
Germination of the fully myco-heterotrophic orchid Cyrtosia septentrionalis is characterized by low fungal specificity and does not require direct seed-mycobiont contact
TLDR
Seeds of Cyrtosia septentrionalis germinated in the presence of the unknown Polyporales species underwent further growth and development, as compared with the other fungi tested, when covered with soil, indicating low mycorrhizal specificity in germination. Expand
Assessing the interaction of orchid seed and mychorrhiza isolated from cultivated Grammatophyllum stapeliiflorum (Teijsm. and Mann.) S.S. Smith based on in-vitro symbiotic seed germination.
TLDR
Germination experiments demonstrated that G. stapeliiflorum was generalist in its association with fungal symbionts, suggesting that this habitat had a poorer biodiversity and harbored a low number of fungus endophytes. Expand
In vitro propagation of myco-heterotrophic Gastrodia elata
TLDR
An in vitro symbiotic propagation system of Gastrodia elata is established, which might be an efficient way to prevent degeneration of G. elata tubers and the reduction of yield in the field. Expand
Endophytic fungi associated with roots of epiphytic orchids in two Andean forests in Southern Ecuador and their role in germination
TLDR
A generalist relationship between C. radians and all the studied epiphytic orchids and the potential role of this fungus as a promoter of orchid seed germination is revealed. Expand
Variation in mycorrhizal specificity in Tiger orchids (Grammatophyllum spp.)
TLDR
Grammatophyllum seeds are minute and lack endosperm, and were the most effective orchid mycorrhizas to promote seed germination of tropical orchid, G. stapeliiflorum, it can be concluded that Grammatphyllum spp. Expand
Fungal colonization associated with phenological stages of a photosynthetic terrestrial temperate orchid from the Southern Iberian Peninsula.
TLDR
It is confirmed that fungal symbionts varied among the different phenological stages examined, the peak of endophyte diversity appearing in the flowering stage, and knowledge concerning this mycobiota is of special relevance in the establishment of reliable conservation programmes. Expand
The Role of Non-Mycorrhizal Fungi in Germination of the Mycoheterotrophic Orchid Pogoniopsis schenckii Cogn.
TLDR
This is the first report of germination of a MH and aclorophyllated orchid species stimulated by the presence of non-mycorrhizal endophytic fungi isolated from fruits and roots of the same species. Expand
Identification of a mycorrhizal fungus in Epipogium roseum (Orchidaceae) from morphological characteristics of basidiomata
TLDR
Morphological and anatomical characteristics of the basidioma mostly accorded with those of Coprinellus disseminatus, and it was concluded that C. disseminatus is one of the mycobionts of E. roseum. Expand
A method for facilitating the seed germination of a mycoheterotrophic orchid, Gastrodia pubilabiata, using decomposed leaf litter harboring a basidiomycete fungus, Mycena sp.
TLDR
This work describes a simple culture system for the mycoheterotrophic orchid, Gastrodia pubilabiata, that does not require laboratory facilities and can also serve as a model system for physiological and molecular studies of such plants. Expand
Saprotrophic fungal mycorrhizal symbionts in achlorophyllous orchids: finding treasures among the 'molecular scraps'?
TLDR
It is speculated that association between mycoheterotrophic orchids and saprophytic fungi arose several times in the evolution of the two partners, which indirectly illustrates why transition from saprotrophy to mycorrhizal status is common in fungal evolution. Expand

Formation of endomycorrhizas by an achlorophyllous orchid,Erythrorchis ochobiensis, andAuricularia polytricha
TLDR
The results indicated that some heterobasidiomycetous fungi could form endomycorrhizas with a myco-heterotrophic orchid and showed that the symbiont of E. ochobiensis extends, at least experimentally, to HeterobAsidiomyCetes. Expand
The biology of Epipogium roseum (D. Don) Lindl
Epipogium roseum is a tropical, holosaprophytic orchid; it lacks chlorophyll, and its colour on the whole is pale yellow, occasionally somewhat brown. The flowers are also pale yellow, sometimes withExpand
Symbiotic germination and development of myco-heterotrophic plants in nature: transfer of carbon from ectomycorrhizal Salix repens and Betula pendula to the orchid Corallorhiza trifida through shared hyphal connections.
TLDR
The results provide the first experimental confirmation that growth of Corallorhiza trifida can be sustained by supply of C received directly from an autotrophic partner through linked fungal mycelia. Expand

The seed burial method enabled the clarification of the differences in orchid-fungal specificity in situ and in vitro and concluded that the specificity between S. sinensis var. Expand
Isolation and identification of mycorrhizal fungi associating with an achlorophyllous plant, Epipogium roseum (Orchidaceae)
TLDR
The identity of mycorrhizal fungi associated with the achlorophyllous orchid Epipogium roseum was investigated by DNA analysis and it was shown that all the isolates clustered with fungi belonging to Psathyrella or Coprinus in Coprinaceae. Expand

SYMBIOTIC GERMINATION OF SOME AUSTRALIAN TERRESTRIAL ORCHIDS
TLDR
It was found that different isolates of Tulasnella calospora differed markedly in the efficiency with which they stimulated germination of the species of Diuris and Thelymitra and the most efficient isolates were not necessarily those isolated from these orchids. Expand
