The present paper deals with the studies on the influence of various physicochemical conditions on the mycelial growth of white rot fungus (Phanerochaete chrysosporium).
The factors include glucose concentration, rice hull lixivium in the synthetic medium, temperature, pH, rotational speed and cultivation time in the prevailing environmental conditions. Effect of synchronous factors has been investigated. The best growth of the fungus in terms of dry weight was obtained with the rotation speed of 160 r/min, a temperature of 30°C, rice hull lixivium 0.419 ml/ml, glucose concentration 35 g/L and a pH of 3.5.
