Pleurotus florida is an edible mushroom with high quality of proteins, fiber, vitamins and minerals. The cultivation of Pleurotus florida using different substrates provides a comparative assessment of its nutritive values. The mushroom grown on paddy straw shows high amount of carbohydrate and protein content as compared to sugarcane base substrate.
