The experiment was performed to evaluate culture and growth performance of genus Dicrateria inornataParke. M. Three different growth media i.e., Natural Sea water, f/2 and Walne’s were selected for the comparative analysis. The culture flask containing 250ml media were inoculated in 50ml of axenic culture of D. inornataParke. M. The culture flask were incubated at 24 ± 2°C for 12 hours light and12 hours in dark photoperiod. The media at 5 different pH ranging from 5 to 9 were observed. The growth rate of D. inornataParke. M was analyzed by cell count method with the help of haemocytometer at an interval of 48 Hours. The maximum growth was observed at the end of 15th day in Walne’s media (23.2 cells/100μl), in F/2 media (18.1 cells/100μl) and in sea water media (12.4cells/100μl) on 11th day at pH 8. The Effect of different photoperiod on the growth of D. inornata Parke. natural sea waterat 16hrs light and 8 hrs dark (11.8cells/100μl) maximum growth achieved on 11th day. The maximum growth achieved on 15th dayin F/2 media (18.1cell/100μl) and Walne’s media (24.9cells/100μl) at 16hrs light and 8hrs dark condition. Thus it can be concluded that at different pH the influence of chemical compounds on the growth of D. inornata Parke. M. varies.
