Abstract: Vegetative growth studies of Psathyrella atroumbonata Pegler, a Nigerian indigenous mushroom was carried out. The mushroom grew satisfactorily on the three media tested. Nutrient Agar (NA) was the best in supporting mycelial extension followed in order by Malt Extract Agar (MEA) and potato Dextrose Agar (PDA), which had lower mycelial extension but higher density of mycelial growth. The optimum temperature for the growth mushroom was 25oc, while the best PH for its growth was between 6-8. The mushroom grew well in all spawn materials tested. The best grain for spawn production was Sorghum, followed by millet which had the highest mycelial density. The implication of these findings is discussed in relation to the domestication and cultivation of the mushroom.
