A pot experiment was conducted to study the effectiveness of two arbuscular mycorrhiza (AM) species in enhancing growth of cocoa seedlings. Cocoa seedlings of hybrid UITIxNa32 inoculated with Glomus mosseae and Scutellospora calospora either as a single inoculum or as a mixed inoculum and an uninoculated control were grown in 2 kg sterilized Tai Tak series soil. The experiment was a single factor experiment arranged in a completely randomized design, with type of inoculum as a factor with four replications. Of the four treatment used, plants inoculated with mixed inoculum Glomus mosseae and Scutellospora calospora gave more pronounced and significant vegetative growth and higher percentage of root colonization than the other treatments. Maximum plant height and total leaf area of 43.7 cm and 1819.2 cm 2 respectively were obtained from seedlings inoculated with mixed inoculum compared to seedlings given either G. mosseae (37.9 cm dan 1007.2 cm 2 ), or S. calospora (32.3 cm and 1316 cm 2 ) and control (28.5 cm and 736J cm 2 ). The highest percentage of root colonization (72%) was aslo recorded from seedlings inoculated with mixed inoculum followed by those given S. calospora (54%) and single inoculum G. mosseae (43%).
