The successful production of oyster mushroom strongly depends on the cultivation character of the selected strains and hybrids. There are some old, almost forgotten hybrids and some new ones; the latter ones are offered by the spawn producers as results of novel breeding activities. In the frame of our work we performed comparative cultivation experiments with some traditional P. ostreatus strains were stored in stock cultures and were used formerly. The aim of the work was to get a comprehensive view about the cultivation character of some new strains and hybrids, and those old strains that are still preserved in cultures.
