The substrate is rye grain. I just ordered some jalisco strain and I will be doing that on rye. I will case with peat moss/ verm. and on the other coir/ verm. I add lime proportionitely to balance pH. The temp needs to be 85 and up for colonization and for fruiting in high 70s. Keep in mind that mexicana forms sclerotia so dont be worried if you open your jar and find rocks of grain. Colinization of sclerotia takes about 1 to 2 months depending on size of jar.

rye grass seed is best. Innoculate and Incubate at 80 degrees. Shake the first week or two until it's 100% colonized, then wait 3 months for maximum sclerotia formation.
Can it be grown as a fruitbody?
