Yo what’s up DGC!?
I wanted to share with you all some of my recent microscopy work. In the pictures below we have some awesome endophytes! Endophytes are organisms, bacterium or fungal, that live inside of a plant. The endophytes pictured are AMF (Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi). The circular/oblong shapes are called vesicles , you can also see the fungal hyphae surrounding the root and connecting to the vesicles. The symbiotic relationship between plants and endophytes is amazing and the most efficient way for plants to receive nutrition. They also assist in many other ways by assisting in the plants adaptation to stressful environments. Fortunately, most of us use products like recharge which helps get these colonies established! Hopefully more on this topic and many more coming your way soon! Thanks guys!
