This work is the first study of the localization of phototrophic microorganisms in the rhizoplane and velamen of epiphytic orchids, namely, on the aerial and substrate roots of Acampe papillosa and Dendrobium moschatum and on the aerial roots of Phalaenopsis amabilis and Dendrobium phalaenopsis. The composition of the bacterial community on the plant roots depended on the conditions of plant growth. Under conditions simulating the climate of moist tropical forests, the aerial roots proved to be… 
Bacteria associated with the roots of epiphytic orchids
This work is the first to report the isolation and identification of bacteria colonizing the roots of the tropical epiphytic orchids Acampe papillosa (Lindl.) Lindl. and Dendrobium moschatum
Associative Cyanobacteria Isolated from the Roots of Epiphytic Orchids
TLDR
In the parenchyma of the aerial roots of P. amabilis, fungal hyphae and/or their half-degraded remains were detected, which testifies to the presence of mycorrhizal fungi in this plant.
Bacteria Associated with Orchid Roots
TLDR
The performed study extends the knowledge on the diversity of the orchid microbial populations and the evident beneficial role of “satellite” bacteria in orchid propagation by localization and isolation of various phototrophic and heterotrophic bacteria from the roots of selected wild grown and greenhouse orchids.
Colonization strategy of the endophytic plant growth‐promoting strains of Pseudomonas fluorescens and Klebsiella oxytoca on the seeds, seedlings and roots of the epiphytic orchid, Dendrobium nobile Lindl
TLDR
This work aimed to investigate the distribution of plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) at different stages of orchid development and to study if there is any selective specificity in choosing PGPR partners.
Cyanobacterium Nostoc paludosum Kütz as a basis for creation of agriculturally useful microbial associations by the example of bacteria of the genus Rhizobium
Different species of Rhizobium were successfully introduced into the extracellular slime of Nostoc paludosum (Kütz) Elenk, strain 18; cyanobacteria did not eliminate them and exhibited no specificity
Applications of endophytic-fungal-isolates from velamen root of wild orchids in floriculture
TLDR
Overall, the experiment proved that the endophytic fungal isolates from the wild orchid A. praemorsa synthesize bioactive compounds including IAA that can promote growth in ornamental orchids such as Dendrobium sp.
Endophytic diversity of hanging velamen roots in the epiphytic orchid Acampe praemorsa
TLDR
The velamen-root-associated fungal community of Acampe praemorsa and its variation in relation to three different geographic locations was explored and the surface characteristics of the velamen roots in attached positions were examined.

Microbiota of the Orchid Rhizoplane
TLDR
In orchids occupying different econiches, the spectra of the bacterial genera revealed differed, and the microbial complex of the terrestrial orchid rhizoplane differed from that of the surrounding soil.
Stimulation of ectomycorrhizal infection of Pinus radiata by some microorganisms associated with the mantle of ectomycorrhizas
TLDR
Results suggest that some specific microbial communities have evolved to live in close association with ectomycorrhizal fungi in their symbiotic state, with mutual benefit.
Effect of IAA on symbiotic germination of an Australian orchid and its production by orchid-associated bacteria
TLDR
Seven isolates of orchid-associated bacteria belonging to five species were tested for their effect on mycorrhiza-assisted germination of the terrestrial orchid Pterostylis vittata, finding symbiotic germination was enhanced by IAA, inhibited by gibberellic acid and suppressed by kinetin.

The Role of the Velamen of the Aerial Roots of Orchids
TLDR
The principal roles of the velamen in free aerial roots are mechanical protection and the prevention of excess loss of water from the cortex, as shown by studies on photosynthesis and respiration of detached roots.
