This research was conducted to apply rice straw as a material for growing gray oyster mushroom in cylindrical plastic bags by using different supplementary materials to increase mushroom development. The results were found that the fresh weight of mushrooms cultivated in different supplementations were statistically different at the 0.05 level (p < 0.05). The supplement contained
10 g of urea, 20 g of limestone, 10 g of dolomite and 10 g of gypsum had the the most fresh weight of 1,365 g/bag. The control contained 100% of rice straw (non-supplementary) had the lowest fresh weight of 529 g/bag. The rice straw growing materials mixed with 10 g of urea, 20 g of limestone, 10 g of dolomite and 10 g of gypsum had the highest biological efficiency of 94.14%. Whereas the 100% rice straw cultivating materials gave the lowest biological efficiency of 29.80%. The results showed that rice straw with supplementary materials containing 10 g of urea, 20 g of limestone, 10 g of dolomite and 10 g of gypsum could increase productivity of gray oyster mushroom.
