Abstract: A mushroom is macro fungus having good source of protein, vitamins and minerals. The development and nutritional value of Pleurotus ostreatus were analysed using different substrates such as areca nut husk (AH), areca palm leaves (AL), topsoil (TS), bamboo shoots (BS), and its mixture with topsoil were used for cultivation. The growth of mycelia on bamboo shoot was decayed after few days. The maximum mycelia growth was detected in topsoil and very less in mixture of bamboo shoot and topsoil and mixture areca palm leaves and topsoil.
Index Terms: Areca Nut Husk, Areca Palm Leaves, Bamboo Shoots, Pleurotus Ostreatus,  Topsoil.
