As a matter of fact, I just bought some A. blazei from Fungi Perfecti. I cased it and the mycelium doesn' seem to be all that rhizomorphic like A. subrufescens when you case it. Is this normal?
Workman-what percent is the malt in your agar solution? What would happen if your molarity is about 40%? I was under the impression that A. augustus would fruit and germinate under similar conditions as A. blazei because they only come out during the warmer months here in the PNW.

I used Bob Harris premixed Malt agar that I bought years ago (just ran out). I am not sure of the percentage. It works with all psilocybes. I remember reading somewhere that A. augustus is very slow growing in culture and difficult to work with. I was hoping to get it going enough to plant in my yard. I may try using pdy agar with the print I have and I will try to collect more material this summer.

This may be obsolete, but I read in David Arora's Mushrooms Demystified (second edition) that the reason why A. augustus has not been cultivated commercially is because it prefers a disturbed habitat, which creates a certain factor that stimulates fruiting. "Obviously, the process of disrupting, overturning, or paving the soil must release certain otherwise inaccessible nutrients, and perhaps the moisture-absorbing properties and/ or pH of the soil are changed. An unsurpassed edible mushroom like Agaricus augustus could be raised commercially if this puzzle were solved." I personally think that another possibility which should be scrutinized is if the physical tearing and reconnecting of the mycelium of A. augustus helps form primordia (ie. deep scratching the casing layer).
