From my experience, azurescens grows poorly on malt extract agar but it does better on dog food agar and grows nicely on sterilized bird seed. It grows equally well on either pear or douglas fir and also grows well on pine cones. Old slightly rotted wood is much better than fresh. For a substrate, I like to collect sticks and branches (the kind you would use for starting a fire) and submerge them in water for two weeks and then put them, dripping wet, into a plastic bag for another two weeks. After this treatment, I put the wood in a styrofoam box or plastic bag and inoculate it with a spawn of colonized grain and incubate at room temperature. Pasteurizing the substrate is not necessary. Later I case with finely chopped bark chips and when the mycelium begins running across the surface it is ready to be moved outside and exposed to the cool night air for cold shocking. True outdoor beds are said to work best but I live in a desert climate where an outdoor bed would quickly dry out. I cover the bed by day and open it at night with daily mistings.
