Abstract—The importance of ectomycorrhizal colonization to ecosystem processes has been well documented. Artificial inoculation of ectomycorrhiza has been used in nursery seedlings and seems to be an important contributor to the survival potential of seedlings in the forest production. The seedlings of Dipterocarpus retusus was planted in the field and observed their ectomycorrhizal association for 1 year inoculated with Russula sp. and Scleroderma citrinum. Ectomycorrhizal colonization was confirmed within 6 months after inoculation of the fungus. High soil moisture and low soil pH at different season was found to influence ectomycorrhizal colonization of the root seedlings. The seedlings does not show differences in the growth of ectomycorrhizal and non mycorrhizal seedlings when the moisture was low and ectomycorrhizal association was not formed. But when ectomycorrhizal root tips was active there showed significant growth differences between the inoculated seedlings and control seedlings. Thus, there is a positive correlation in the growth and mycorrhizal formation.
