do you mean hypsizygus ulmarius? i've seen reports of success on pf cakes with edibles such as oyster and shitake, but not this one yet - i think it requires a wood-based food, but would love for you to prove that unnecessary. it would be trickier from spores than from a living mycelium, but go for it. good luck - nothing ventured, nothing gained.

i was just curious as i bought a big clump of hon shimeji mushrooms from the supermarket which the stems of the shrooms had begun to grow fuzzy mycelium towards the bottom, i was then shocked to discover a clump of colonized grain spawn stuck to the bottom of the shrooms so i am using this to make several agar cultures and i have everything i need to make PF jars lying around. maybe the PF recipe could be modified for gourmet mushrooms by mixing sawdust, riceflour and woodchips. I was also wondering if for making liquid cultures one could make a slanted agar culture in a jar first and then inject in malt extract liquid culture medium into the jar once it was colonized so that the mycelium would then bu submerged in the solution? i only have mycelium and no spores so this seems more practical than trying to transfer mycelium into a seperate container of liquid medium.

I would not use the clump of colonized grain spawn to inoculate your agar plates because it will probably be covered with lots of contams. You'd better rip one of the mushrooms open and cut a small (semi sterile) piece from the stem or cap to inoculate your plates in a still air environment (like a glove box).

Later you can use a colonized wedge to inoculate liquid medium, like you suggest.

if the mycelium is that aggresive that the ends are regrowing, you can probably throw it into a jar of unsterlizized, maybe just pasteurized, woodchips/sawdust.. commonly that is how wildcrafters grow the wine cap stropharia
