So I have Coprinus comatus on agar and I will be transferring to WBS in 1pint jars.

I have never grown this species before so any guidance and tips would be awesome.

 

For my substrates I have alder chips, wheat straw, manure, worm castings, coir. Any

suggestions on ratios of what I have? Oh I also have lime.

I've never grown shaggy mane, but poking around them internetz I see that they are dung-lovers (thus, "coprinus").  I saw one article where the grower just used manure and straw.  I bet there's some information on shaggy mane in Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms by Paul Stamets.

 

Hopefully somebody who knows better will come along with more information.  Please post a thread with pictures about your attempt.  As far as I can remember, I've never seen a shaggy mane thread on Mycotopia. 

 

Good luck!  :)

All your ingredients are good I would use some of each. As far as ratios I will use 50 50 coir hpoo about the same volume of sawdust, so equal parts of each. I don't like to use to much straw and have never used worm casings. Right now I have shaggies going on rye berries as spawn. I plan on doing trays of sawdust, coir, hpoo and straw outside starting around the end of May.
If you tried, I bet that you can get them to fruit indoors at room temperature if that is your plan. Looking forward to see what you come up with... Like Sidestreet said " share pictures "

Yeah I want to try my hand at fruiting them indoors. I'll try a ratio

like you described. And don't worry, pics will come as soon as I

transfer to WBS jars!

I spoke too soon. My culture ain't looking so hot. I may have

to go another route. Maybe lions mane. I do have some

other coprinoid spores. Coprinellus domesticus and

Coprinellus micaceus. Maybe one of these until I get another

shaggy mane culture
