Peats ecosystem has different species and densities of Arbuscular Mycoriza Fungi (AMF). Plant Rhizosphere at peatland has various
kinds of microorganisms, including AMF. For further use, study of the potency of indigenous AMF is necessary. This research
was conducted to study the potency of indigenous AMF, from the physic corn and nuts, which grow on peatland of Rasau dan Jawai,
Pontianak West Kalimantan. Soils samples were collected and then observed under microscope. The steps to study the potency of
AMF were (1) trapping the spora, (2) identifying the types of spore, and (3) counting of spora with Seive and Wet Techniques by
Pacioni and Brunndret. The result showed that the number of spores AMF of Glomus sp., from cultivated Rasau was 227 spores 50
g-1 soil and from of Jawai was 1819 spores 50 g-1 soil. Indigenous AMF from the soil where physic corn and nut grown at Rasau and
Jawai were dominated by Glomus sp.
