Simple question: Can any soil fungi fix atmospheric nitrogen the way some bacteria can?
This was said by Opabinia51, [url=https://www.helpfulgardener.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=932]here[/url].Endo and Ectomycorrhizae are apparently not involved in composting, these are the fungi that are associated with the roots of plants. Endomycorrhizae penetrate the actual root of the plant and live inside and ectomycorrhizae live outside the plant. Both are mutualists providing the plant with Nitrogen (which they fix) and other nutrients.
That sounds like good, easy plan.Toil wrote:these days I just assume fungi do everything, and I wait to hear about what they don't.
