Specimen plants of Dracaena sanderiana showing stem rot symptoms were collected from a local market in Tehran. Aspergillus niger was isolated from all diseased plants. Healthy greenhouse plants were inoculated and developed disease symptoms. The authors were able to isolate A. niger from all inoculated plants.
