Yes, but it's not easy. You hvae to clone a truffle (sclerotia), either on agar or in a liquid myclium culture. Then you would use your new culture to innoculate a substrate of sterile rye grass seed.

Your species will either be Psilocybe Mexicana or Psilocybe Tampanesis

Some good info;

Cloning

Cultivation of P. Mexicana and P.Tampanesis sclerotia on rye grass seed

It isn't easy. You will need a pressure cooker, some kind of clean workspace (e.g. flow hood or glovebox), and this is all dependent on you having viable truffles. If they are dried out, chances of gaining a viable culture are very low.

If you want more info, ask more questions. :tongue:

I have grown them...but once i got them out of the jar into a terrarium with perlite and a bit of vermiculyte it all developed mold...

I just used sterelized brown rice cakes mixed with vermiculyte: introduced a bit of mycelium that i collected from a kit and it started to grow easy, but it took like a couple of months to fully colonized the half pint size jar...
:rolleyes:
