The present study aimed at cultivating the fruiting body of an edible mushroom identified as Lentinus squarrosulus collected from home garden of Tripura in Northeast India and for assessing the mycelium biomass growth using various carbon and nitrogen sources under submerged culture condition. The cultivation of the mushroom using paddy straw revealed dry weight of 0.25±0.02 g per fruit body with 21.83 % of biological efficiency. Under submerged culture condition, fructose exhibited highest mycelium dry weight and yeast extract was found to be a best nitrogen source. The availability of the mushroom in the forest and homegarden of Tripura may be utilized for its commercial cultivation and inclusion in the local food. Fructose and yeast extract is recommended for high mycelial biomass production.
