Abstract

Mycelial growth and fruit body formation of Pleurotus abalonus and P. eryngii cultured on various sawdust-based substrates from different wood species were investigated. Growth on Cryptomeria japonica substrate resulted in good mycelial growth and a high yield of fruit bodies. Larix kaempferi substrate was unsuitable for the cultivation of these mushrooms. The fruit body formation rate correlated with mycelial growth from all the wood species tested. Although differences were found for mycelial growth and fruit body formation on various wood species, there were no wood species that were completely unsuitable except L. kaempferi. These results show that a wide range of wood species can be used for the cultivation of P. abalonus and P. eryngii.
