Agarwood (Aquilaria malaccensis) is one of the non-timber forest products that has high economic value. However, this plant grows very slowly. Therefore, seed technology input is needed, such as addition of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF). The objectives of this research were to study the effect of AMF inoculum i.e. Glomus sp., Gigaspora margarita and mixture of both species on agarwood growth and to determine the best AMF type for agarwood seedlings growth. The experimental research design used was a completely randomized design with three treatments, namely Glomus sp. (G), G. margarita (Gi) and a mixture of Glomus sp. and G. margarita (GGi) and without AMF inoculation (K) with each treatment repeated 8 times. The number of AMF spores used was ± 300 spores/seedling, and applied at the time of transplanting from germination tray to the polybag. Data were processed using analysis of variance and least significant difference test (LSD). The results showed there was AMF colonization in agarwood roots after 12 weeks of inoculation with the highest percentage at 20.50% on G. margarita treatment. Overall, AMF improved the growth of agarwood seedlings. The best seedlings growth was in the treatment of mixed AMF (GGi). Increased growth was found in plant height (14.68 cm), seedling diameter (2.16 mm), leaf area (119.30 cm 2 ), root volume (1.15 mL), total dry weight (0.83 g), and shoot root ratio (4.99).
