Milky (or Swetha) Mushroom Cultivation

Milky mushrooms seem to be popular in India, but there are few details available for would-be growers.

Scientifically known as Calocybe indica, the milky mushroom grows in forest environments in India. As far as we can tell, the species was first cultivated in the mid-1970's using straw substrates, much like oyster mushrooms. They seem to like very hot temperatures in the vicinity of 95° F. After incubation, a casing layer is added. The following links provide information on cultivation techniques for this mushroom.
