Abstract:

was first isolated in 1980 from a patient with pneumonia in Long Beach, Calif. Legionellae were isolated from 11 of the 13 composted wood products samples and all 11 potting mix samples after amoebic enrichment. was isolated from 4 and 5 samples, respectively. The most predominant species of obtained from potting soils was serogroup 1, which was isolated from 13 samples. In contrast to , was isolated without enrichment from six samples. In the present survey, most of the species isolated from Japanese potting soils have been associated with disease in humans, an important finding with respect to public health. In Japan, various types of potting soils are used for gardening, such as composted wood products, potting mixes, peat moss, and peat moss-sand mixes. Japanese potting soils contain composted wood products produced from broadleaves such as oak and Japanese oak (sometimes cryptomeria and cypress), in contrast to pines or eucalyptus in Australia.
