Abstract:

Mushrooms need carbon and nitrogen for structural and functional purposes in addition to trace elements, growth regulators and vitamins. Therefore, evaluation of their role in influencing the growth of the mushroom is a necessary aspect to be studied. The influences of sugar, temperature and growth regulators were investigated during this experiment on the mycelium growth of different species of oyster mushroom viz., P. florida, P. flabellatus, P. djamor and P. eryngii. The results of the present experiment indicated that maximum radial growth was found in glucose followed by maltose. P. djamor and P. eryngi exhibited highest radial growth (90.00 mm) at the temperature of 29°C followed by P. florida (83.50 mm). Whereas P. flabellatus (78.00 mm) showed maximum radial growth at 26ºC. Maximum radial growth of Pleurotus spp. was recorded at 5 ppm and 10 ppm concentration of gibberellic acid and indolbutaric acid. So, it was concluded that we can increase the vegetative growth of Pleurotus spp. by adding glucose, maltose as sugar along with growth regulators like gibberellic acid and indolbutaric acid.
