Shaggy mane outdoors
    #3121350 - 09/11/04 04:50 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Got mycelium of coprinus comatus from wizard2k he cloned from a wild species last autumn.
It grew very fast on agar and grain and also a substrate made of straw/worm castings.
In spring the colonized substrate looked like that:



The problem was that I could not get them to fruit.
I cased them two times with a peat/perlite mixture but the mycelium always grew through the casing.
So I decided to bury the mycelium outside in a corner of the garden.

After the first cold nights the first pins showed up:



They developed to major fruitinbodies during the past two weeks:









Yeah and now I have made a soup with some of the beautyful creatures :wink: .

I do not know why it is that hard to trigger the fruiting indoors, but I guess the need a certain chronology of temperature cycles, light etc.
Probably it also depends very much on the strain itself and - as a grower who successfully grew them indoors suggested - a unsterile casing.
He used a mixture of peat/sand/bark mulch to trigger fruiting in his basement.

Has anyone else experiences with growing coprinus comatus ?

Glad that you like them ...

I have found a picture of coprinus comatus in an old german mushroom book (Werner Dittmer; Frische Pilze selbst gezogen.).
On the picture it looks as if the Coprinus were growing on a straw substrate cased with some soil:



Do you think that it is possible that they grow on pure straw ?
The description in the book does not say anything about the substrate ...

Beautiful!

I've still only gotten to the point where the mycelium grows over the casing layer, without forming any primordia. Haven't done much experimenting since.

According to Stamets, they can be grown on straw, but with less yield than on compost (TMC, p. 171)

Interesting, maybe a straw/compost mixture would be ideal ?
It's really a pity that I cannot get them to grow indoors - cause I like them very much.
Maybe it would be good to experiment with different strains that are not that temperature sensitive ?
