Fungi are the first organisms to decompose organic substances found in plants and animals into simple elements. Some are edible and some contain poison. Edible wild mushrooms are one of the forest resources that have not been used optimally. As this is well known that wild mushrooms are only used by certain local or ethnic communities for food supply. One of the edible wild mushrooms is Schizophyllum commune. This fungus is a wood rot fungus and is usually found in various substrates such as dead tree trunks and branches. The use of mushrooms from nature can threaten the existence of wild mushrooms that grow in nature. The aim of this study was to obtain pure cultures of Schizophyllum commune. This study used a survey method and was analyzed descriptively. The results of this study indicate that the discovery of pure cultures of Schizophyllum commune on PDA (Potato Dextrose Agar) media with forms such as white fine threads and mycelium can fill the petri dish faster than previous studies and other fungal mycelium.

Keywords: Edible wild mushroom, Schizopyllum commune, Media
