I don't have any improvements, just further information: Semis enjoy a mixture of malt and potato extract when isolating strains from petri dishes. They tend to form these little concave bumps that look like sclerotia, but I am not sure what they are. Anyways, once you isolate a good strain, the mycelium is easily expanded via a malt liquid culture.
Since rye is a bitch to work with and contaminates rather easily, I recommend using rye grass seed instead. With a liquid culture, colonizing a quart jar takes a week when using 12 cc's of liquid culture and shaking it thoroughly once innoculated. This will be used as spawn to innoculate a bulk substrate. Workman was only able to fruit his strain using dung. I recommend trying to use what they grow on in the wild-composted grass-not green grass, but the yellow/brown stuff.
After the compost is fully colonized outdoors, the patch will be fully neglected.
As for fruiting them, I'm going to let nature take care of that outdoors. For a casing layer, a thin layer of nutrient leached dirt will be used. Some grass will then be grown on the casing to aid in humidity. This patch will be located in a field with grass that surrounds the bed.
