Fun with Fungus - Factors affecting the growth of Mushrooms
Division:Life Sciences
Region:Yukon Stikine
City:Whitehorse, YT
School:Selkirk Elementary School
Abstract:I experimented with oyster mushrooms (Plurotus ostreatus) to determine factors which effected growth. Air and pH levels were the variables tested. Using my knowledge of oyster mushroom growth, I then experimented with them to determine how chemical cleaners such as borax, bleach and Dr. Bonners affected the growth of the mushrooms.
