Ectomycorrhiza helped plants to absorb nutrients and water. Shorea javanica belong to Dipterocarpaceae family and highly dependent on ectomycorrhiza to growth. Spore inoculation was one way to inoculate ectomycorrhiza fungi. This study aimed to get the best doses of spore Scleroderma columnare on colonization and enhancing growth of Shorea javanica seedling. This experiment used randomized complete design with 5 treatments and 3 replicates. The treatments were 0, 5, 10, 15, and 20 ml/polybag spore inoculum of S. columnare. Data obtained were analyzed by analysis of variance (anova) and continued with Least Significant Different (LSD). The results showed that added of 10 ml (6,5 x 107) gained higher root colonizatition (%).  Dosis of 10 ml (6,5 x 107) and 20 ml (1,3 x 108) spore inoculum were able to improve plant growth on the parameters such as plant height, shoot dry weight, total dry weight, and total leaf area.


Keywords: Dose of Inoculum, ectomycorrhiza, Scleroderma columnare, Shorea javanica.
