The Pleurotus mushrooms, in addition to their demonstrated potential in human nutrition, shows important biotechnological applications: they are producers of molecules with pharmaceutical properties, they reduce the level of lignocellulosic residues in nature, contributing to the restoration of the planet's ecosystems, and to the biological elimination of contaminants. The remaining substrate obtained in the cultivation of Pleurotus mushrooms over coffee pulp (SRS, in Spanish), whit micelial biomass, is a good foods for animals, as well as, fertilizers for the cultivation of plants. In this work,are presented the results obtained for use of remaining substrate (SRS) in the process of acclimation of the plantain of the Gran enano (Musa sp.). Finally, is demonstrated that these two organic fertilizers: the combination humus:SRS2 and humus pure, present the fundamental characteristics that are required for an organic fertilizer to be used in the adaptation of vitro-plants. The results reveal how Pleurotusmushroom biotechnology is involved in processing technologies and powerful bioconversions of renewable materials, but mainly in products with high added value.
