Abstract: The aim of present research is to investigate the nature of the relationship established among partners, forced associates, depending on ecophysiological conditions, namely induced in vitro co-culture between Cladosporium sp. fungus and Asparagus officinalis L. phytoinocula. At 30 days from co-culture initiation, on Murashige-Skoog mineral medium, without growth regulators, lightened with white fluorescent light, 1700 lx intensity, with the photoperiod of 16 h day length/24h, and a temperature of 20 ± 2ºC, the two partners no interacted, and both had normally developed. Asparagus explants provided from a co-culture with Cladosporium sp. which was individual cultivated on fresh medium, ulterior showed no infection.
