    Milky mushroom (Colocybe indica) is characterized by a milky large sporophore with delicious flavour.
    - It can be grown at 25-30 C. There is a good scope for its cultivation in tropical areas with a biological efficiency of 60-70%. It is grown on wheat or rice straw in polypropylene bags with supplements like maize-meal, wheat bran and rice husk @ 5-7% both during spawning and casing. After 8-10 days of mycelial run casing with 2-year-old cowdung patties up to a thickness of 2.5cm has been recommended.
    - Mixture of garden soil and sand (1:1) or soil/sand mixture supplemented with calcium carbonate is also used as casing. The first flush of mushroom is ready for harvesting within 3-4 weeks from spawning at 25-30 C, high humidity, defused light and good aeration. Fruiting bodies harvested before shedding of spores are required to be packed in perforated polythene bags as whole or in pieces for fresh marketing. For drying mushrooms are cut as chips and dried under the sun or in oven at 40-50C without change in colour.
