Forest soil fungi Trichoderma viride 85/1 and T. harzianum 658, applied during rooting of carnation cuttings, strongly promoted growth of the plants and gave good biocontrol of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. dianthi. Trichoderma viride 85/1 produced considerable amounts of auxins and small amounts of B-group vitamins.
