In the years 2000–2002 a mycological analysis was made of the corms of Acidanthera
bicolor Hochst. meant for setting up experiments, and the roots, corms and
leaves of plants at anthesis.
The mycological analysis of corms before planting showed that they were infected by Alternaria
alternata, Botrytis cinerea, Fusarium spp. and Penicillium spp. In the period of
vegetation the roots and corms were mainly infected by F. oxysporum, F. culmorum,
F. solani and B. cinerea. On the other hand, the leaves of the studied plant were mostly
infected by A. alternata and B. cinerea.
