In this study, the soybean, sorghum, peanut and wheat straw were used as culture media for Pleurotus florida. The shortest period for mycelium growth on soybean straw was 10.8 days; basidiocarp formation period, the first, second and third harvesting periods were determined as; 28.2, 33.6, 47.2 and 63.8, days respectively as the shortes periods found with peonut straw; 23.2, 59.5, 63.5, 75.2 and 94.0 days respectively, as the longest periods found with sorghum straw. The fresh mushroom yield obtained with 100 g material (70 % moisture) at first, second, third harvesting periods and total yield was 11.2, 7.7, 4.8 and 23.7 respectively, as the highest values found with peanut straw; 5.0, 3.2, 3.1 and 11.3 g respectively as the lowest values found with sorghum straw.
