Ferns grown on nickel post-mining area have a root system which contains type of native arbuscular mycorrhiza in various numbers. To obtain quantitative and qualitative information, study on trapping of native arbuscular mycorrhiza in nickel post-mining rehabilitation ecosystem, particularly in Gleichenia linearis plants is required. This research was started by collecting rhizosphere sample of Gleichenia linearis plants grown on nickel post-mining rehabilitation area. Trapping of spores was done using Zea mays L. through method of layered media. Trapping of arbuscular mycorrhiza used method of wet filter and centrifugation technique. Identification of type and number of arbuscular mycorrhiza spores was performed using the method of manual for the identification of mycorrhizal fungi. The results showed that the types of spores obtained were Glomus sp. (3.41%), Gigaspora sp. (30.76%), and Acaulospora sp. (65.83%).
