Author(s): Karthik Mahadevan and Krishnakumari Shanmugasundaram
Abstract: The mycelium growth performance of Pleurotus sapidus on six different culture media was investigated. The present study evaluates the growth performance of Pleurotus sapidus on different culture media such as Potato Dextrose Agar Medium (PDA), Malt Extract Agar Medium (MEA), Glucose Peptone Agar Medium (GPA), Yeast Malt Agar Medium (YMA), Saboraud’s Dextrose Agar Medium (SDA) and Czapek Dox Agar (CDA). The studies revealed that MEA, PDA and YMA medium have very abundant mycelia growth rate and density, followed by GPA, SDA and CDA medium. This Study Concludes that PDA and MEA are the best culture media for the effective mycelial growth of Pleurotus sapidus.
