The method of assessing fungal colonization of diseased plants by tissue maceration and colony counts was tested in recovery experiments using mycelium and conidia of V. dahliae and V. albo-atrum with tissue of chrysanthemum and tomato, respectively. Maceration of 1st internode chrysanthemum stem with mycelial propagules increased colony numbers between 10- and 13-fold. Combined separate macerates of host and fungus were less stimulatory.
