Does anyone know if i could grow the Termitomyces titanicus or does it need the termites like truffles need the roots?
And if it could be cultivated, does anyone know where to get a print or tissue?

My understanding is that the termitomyces genus relies on termite dung mainly as a substrate. Fruiting is suspected to be caused by heavy rain, and if so is unrelated to the termite colony.

I suspect that if one was to determine a nutrient profile for the termite dung, termitomyces species could be grown successfully without the aid of termites.

http://www.fao.org/documents/show_cdr.asp?url_file=/DOCREP/004/AB497E/ab497e07.htm mentions success growing other termitomyces species.

Quick googling isn't turning up any titanicus cultures for sale (although other Termitomyces cultures are common enough), but I think it pretty likely they're available if you look hard enough.
