Author(s): Amit Kumar Sehgal, Anand Sagar
Abstract: The aim of the study was to evaluate different solid media for the best mycelial growth of Lactarius sanguifluus. Ten solid media tested for best mycelial growth of L. sanguifluus and out ten solid media best mycelial growth was observed in Potato Dextrose Agar Medium. Temperature of 25°C was observed as optimum temperature of maximum growth of mycelium of this mushroom. PH 5.0 was observed as best pH for mycelial growth whereas the mycelium was found to grow better under the dark conditions in comparison to light.
