The oyster mushroom, Pleurotus sajor-caju, was cultivated on different percentages of paddy straw and floral waste. The yield, biological efficiency and moisture content of the mushroom were found to be maximum on 100% Paddy Straw (PS). The proximate compositions of fruiting bodies of mushrooms in terms of protein, total sugar, reducing sugar, non-reducing sugar, total lipid, energy, ash, crude fiber, total cholesterol and triglyceride were determined. The proximate composition ranged differently, for protein (13.76-23.63 g/100g), total sugar (40.12-47.05 g/100g), reducing sugar (6.23-11.07 g/100g), non-reducing sugar (30.74-40.58 g/100g), total lipid (3.31-8.75 g/100g), energy value (285.61-333.13 kcal/100g), ash (5.70-10.33 g/100g), crude fiber (10.42-21.41 g/100g), total cholesterol (1201.04-1559 mg/dl) and total triglyceride (60.13-776.08 mg/dl).
