Persistent suppression of P. destructans germination by induced R. rhodochrous . P. destructans conidia are unable to recover after 24-hour exposure to induced R. rhodochrous. P. destructans control slide (a) produced significant mycelia growth and conidiation (white arrow) after 5 days. P. destructans conidia exposed to induced Rhodococcus for 24 hours (b), 72 hours (c) and 7 days (d) failed to form germules 21 days after removal of induced R. rhodochrous. Halted germination was observed in 72-hour and 7-day exposures (black arrows). All images were captured at 200X magnification.
