Mushroom: Pleurotus eryngii (n-79) (from Jiangxi Provincial Academy of Agricultural Sciences).Five different cultivation materials were used in the present study.

According to Table 1, the carbon to nitrogen ratio of different materials was designed. Then stired the culture material and fitted with a polypropylene plastic bag with a 17 × 36 cm opening in

1 INTRODUCTION

Pleurotus eryngii is one of the Agaricales. Because of the wild mushroom growing conditions for the Pleurotus eryngii usually on umbelliferous plant Eryngium dead wood, the Pleurotus eryngii also named as Eryngo Pleurotus [1-2]. Pleurotus eryngii possesses a promising market as a rare delicacy edible fungi, bacteria meat hypertrophy, crisp texture, nutrient-rich, with almond flavor, is becoming more and more popular for the domestic and foreign consumers [3]. Pleurotus eryngii is a typical saprophytes decompose cellulose, lignin strong ability throughout their growth and development process, relying on its strong decomposition ability, Pleurotus eryngii can obtain abundant nutrients from organic matter [4-5].
