A complete understanding of the plant microbiome has not yet been achieved due to its complexity and temporal shifts in the community structure. To overcome these issues, we created a synthetic bacterial community of the aquatic plant, duckweed. The synthetic community established with six bacterial strains showed a stable composition for 50 days, which may have been because duckweed maintains a similar physiological status through its clonal reproduction. Additionally, the synthetic community reflected the taxonomic structure of the natural duckweed microbiome at the family level. These results suggest the potential of a duckweed-based synthetic community as a useful model system for examining the community assembly mechanisms of the plant microbiome.
