I read a link on using wood pellets/stove pellets and I'm going to give it a shot.
I noticed in the pictorial posted that once the pellets were soaked, broken down into sawdust, mixed with spawn, and packed in freezer bags, the fully colonized bags then were soaked in ice water for a few days to force fruiting.
hck, I'm going to assume azurensis strain. They have to be chilled to simulate the cooling weather of fall. There are several ways to do it, but the cooling is a primary fruiting trigger. You can turn your refer up to mid 40s and put them in there or find someplace where the tems are low but not freezing like a porch. Good luck... Dee

Yes, it depends on the species and strain that you are growing. Some species require a cool period to fruit, others benefit somewhat, while the more tropical species do not need it at all or are slowed down by cool.
