AbstractResearched the effects of adding vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus into the growing medium of three cultivated species of Zephyranthes. Inoculating the growing medium with mycorrhizae generally increased the weight of bulbs and offsets by the start of the second growing cycle. These results may be applicable to two native Zephyranthes species, Z. atamasca var. treatiae and Z. simpsonii.
