Volvariella volvacea is a species of edible mushroom cultivated throughout East and Southeast Asia and used extensively in Asian cuisine. They are often available fresh in regions they are cultivated, but elsewhere are more frequently found canned or dried.
Paddy straw mushroom is a warm temperature loving mushroom, hence can be cultivated in the temperature range of 28 to 38ºC and relative humidity (RH) of 57-60%. Ideal temperature for spawn run is 30-35ºC, while 28-32ºC for fruiting. RH of 80-85% is ideal for both spawn run and fructification.
