Purpose: One of the required steps in the development of Mycoleptodiscus terrestris (Gerd.) Ostazeski as a bioherbicide for Hydrilla verticil/ala (L.f.) Royle was to find a growth medium for the fungus that was inexpensive and adaptable to liquid culture fermentation processes. Because changes in the growth medium can influence fungal characteristics including virulence, it was subsequently necessary to test the effect of those changes on living plant material. This technical note describes aquarium experiments conducted to evaluate efficacy of wet and dry inoculum against hydrilla.
