Abstract

Edible mushrooms are one of the popular foods of the world. Shiitake (Lentinula edodes B.) and Lingzhi (Ganoderma lucidum K.) are high-demand medicinal edible mushrooms and widely cultivated in Indonesia. Up till now, potato is the only substrate media used for growing spawn of F0-mycelial growth phase, while corn seeds are the only substrate media used for the F1-mycelial growth phase. Both of the substrate materials are quite costly and their availability is quite rare in some parts of Indonesia. Hence this study proposed an alternative substrate using lower price materials abundantly available in Indonesia, such as sweet potato and cassava for growing spawn of F0-mycelial and F1- mycelial growth phase for Shiitake and Lingzhi. The results showed the utilization of sweet potato and cassava as substrates gave no different result on F0-mycelial growth of both mushroom species compared to potato medium (P>0.05). On the other hand, the mixture of 40% sweet potato and 60% corn seeds as substrate gave a significantly higher F1-mycelial growth rate compared to 100% corn seeds medium (P<0.05). It was concluded that sweet potato and cassava can be used as alternative substrates for F0 and F1-mycelial growth of Shiitake and Lingzhi cultures.
