Abstract: A survey of fungi diseases of floricultural and ornamental plants in Riyadh region; central Saudi Arabia revealed the presence of many pathogenic fungi. Some of these fungi are reported for the first time in Saudi Arabia. Rhizoctonia solani and Fusarium sp. were associated with wilt and root rots of carnation ( Dianthus caryophyllus ), Fusarium sp. with stem cankers of carnation, Alternaria sp. with leaf marginal death of swiss cheese plants, Monstera sp., and Fusarium sp. and Pythium sp. with wilt and root rots of Chrysanthemum ( Chrysanthemum morofolium ). Seven fungi were also isolated and identified from diseased plants of rose ( Rosa sp. ) , Alternaria sp., Botrytis sp., Heminthosporium sp., Fusarium sp., Ulocladium sp., Sphaerotheca pannosa ( the causal agent of powdery mildew ), and Peronospora sparsa ( the causal agent of downy mildew ). Other fungal and plant diseases are listed.
