Rhizosphere fungi from healthy and unhealthy-looking Anthurium plants were isolated. Four genera were obtained, all belonging to sub-division Deuteromycotina. They were Aspergillus, Penicillium. Torula and Gliocladium. All were known to be saprophytic, soil inhabiting fungi, yet may be detrimental to plants if their number is greatly increased. Their presence in roots from both healthy and unhealthy plants suggested that they are indeed part of the normal soil flora. There were no isolated genera belonging to Class Oomycetes that were known to cause root-rot in Anthurium.
