Abstract

Cultivation of Pleurotus ostreatus on two different substrates, Salvinia molesta and sawdust was investigated. These substrates were mixed with fixed ratio of rice bran and lime. Sawdust is act as control in the experiment. The effects of substrates on mycelium development stage (MR), pinhead formation stages (PH), complete fruiting body phase (CFB), dry weight of mushroom, fresh weight of mushroom, biological efficiency, and cap diameter of the mushroom were analysed. Salvinia molesta was found as a good substrate in term in growth period with total mean growth period of 38.39 days, compare with sawdust with total mean growth period of 61.61 days. In term of mushroom yield, sawdust had a better yield with a higher biological efficiency, 10.32% compare with Salvinia molesta, 7.93%. Thus, the experiment shown Salvinia molesta can be a suitable substrate for cultivation of Pleurotus ostreatus in relative with similar environmental condition, temperature range from 25 to33 and relative humidity range from 63.5% to 84%.
