Cultivation of pink oyster mushroom
 
 
Pink oyster mushroom is Pleurotus djamor var. roseus that has a light to dark pink coloured cap depending upon the strain and growing conditions. It is one of the fastest growing Pleurotus species and can readily colonize on any kind of agricultural waste including wheat or paddy straw, sugar cane bagasse in 8 to 10 days (20-25C). The fruit body formation also takes very less time (10-15 days) as compared to all other Pleurotus spp. It is suitable for cultivation during warmer conditions. Recently coconut wastes mainly rachis and inflorescence part were also found suitable for its cultivation at DMR Solan.
