1. Increased CO2 concentration in the air has a positive effect on mycelium growth in the cultivation ofPleurotus ostreatus, P. florida andP. eryngii (Agar cultures). 2. Between 16% and 22% CO2 in the air is the optimum for the growth of the 3 above-mentioned Pleurotus species. 3. Concentrations of 36 vol.% CO2 inhibited growth of all 3 species. 4. Both sterile and pasteurized straw substrata showed 20–25% (of vol.) CO2 3 days after inoculation. Mycelium growth was normal. CO2 concentration… CONTINUE READING
