Should work but dextrose is better (more specific to fungi.) Honey is pretty much glucose and fructose.

Glucose, fructose and dextrose are all isomers of each other.

Use light corn syrup, it's worked well for me.

Karo in specific.

I have successfully used fructose in my agar mixtures rather than dextrose. And it's worked for me, from my understanding any monosachyride will work.

Fructose is a monosaccaride. Sucrose (table sugar/corn syrup) is a polysaccaride.

I have used Fructose in agar with excellent results.

Cane sugar works fine in agar, I've used it several times with good results.

I also used sucrose with good success.

If you think about it, brown rice flour has hardly any dextrose or fructose, and the shrooms still love it...

True. Rice carbs are way more complex than monosaccarides.

Hell, cornstarch would probably work.
