You will get better results if you start with a culture isolate from a petri dish or some stem core tissue from fresh shroom, that way you know what you're growing. I've had mixed results starting with spores, always fine with a tissue culture, which is basically cloning.

Took awhile for me to see results with honey water. The first time I used too much honey. What I ended up doing was taking several jars each with a different amount of honey in it and trying it to see which amount worked the best. I think each type of honey has its own properties so if you're using a specific brand that is what you might have to do. Unless someone has a namebrand that has never failed them. The last time I asked someone said 8% dextrose instead of honey works wonders but I haven't tried it yet.

Your results sound normal. When shroom mycelium grows on the surface it looks exactly like the growth found on agar. Thick and rhizomorphic with sectoring. Subsurface growth is thin and cottony. The differences you see are environmental not genetic. If the cottony growth is left undisturbed (unshaken) it will eventually work its way to the top, if the liquid isn't too deep, and then you will see both types of growth. Also, if the surface growth sinks, it will become cottony.
