Mushrooms are the fruiting bodies of macro fungi which serve as food, tonic and medicine. They are capable of producing the highest quantity of protein per unit area and time from agri-residues. This study was aimed to find out the physiological requirements for mycelial growth and biomass production of Hypsizygus ulmarius (Bull.: Fr.) Redhead. Four level of temperature (15±1ËšC, 20±1ËšC, 25±1ËšCand 30±1ËšC) and pH (5.0, 6.0, 7.0 and 8.0) were studied to find out the best temperature and pH using PDA medium to obtain maximum mycelial growth and biomass. Temperature level at 25±1ËšC (89.8 mm; 2.6 g/250 ml) and pH at 7 (90 mm; 2.5 g/250 ml) proved to be most favourable, recording the maximum mycelial growth and biomass production.

Keywords: Hypsizygus ulmarius, temperature, pH, mycelial growth, biomass
