Abstract

Pleurotus florida or commonly known as White Oyster Mushrooms are widely and\ commercially grown for food source. In this experiment, P.florida will be grown on waste papers pulp as the substrate with the addition of gypsum, rice bran and rice husk as the supplement in a fixed ratio. Sawdust substrate will be used as the control in this study and there are 6 replications in each treatments while there were 6 treatment in this experiment which will the bring total of 30 replications. The growth and development of fruit body were observed. Parameters that were tested in this experiment are mycelium run rate, numbers of day for primordia and fruiting bodies formation, fresh weight of fruit bodies and biological efficiency. Based on the result obtained, mycelium run rate showed no significant difference (F5, 35=2.348, P>0.05) in all treatments while formation of primordia and fruiting bodies showed significat difference (F5, 35=66.874, P<0.05) and (F5, 35= 9.258, P<0.05). Diameter and fresh weight of fruiting bodies also result in significant difference (F5, 35= 10.517, P < 0.05) and (F5, 35= 10.692, P<0.05). There was no huge difference in biological efficiency for all substrate bags.
