There are three types of fungi namely A. flavus, A.terreus, T. harzianum, and control. Utilization of T. harzianum treatment gave the best results of R. apiculata seedlings, with an average height of 17.00 cm, diameter of 0.69 cm, leaf area of 743.36 cm2, total dry weight of 29.64 g. Compared to the control with average height of 7.36 cm, 0.54 cm of diameter, leaf area of 653.31 cm2, and 27.37 g of total dry weight.
