There is very little information about this. But I have just recently placed bits of the white inner tissue of a giant puffball on potato dextrose agar and it is growing. I have heard of no successful cultivation reports. Apparently growing the mycelium from clones is not a problem. Spores are supposedly hard to germinate.

Puffballs aren't that much of a mystery. Heck, I even know people who sell puffbal grow kits!

I have seen only one outdoor puffball grow kit and it isn't guaranteed. Just a mass of spawn, plant outside and cross your fingers. I meant to say that I haven't seen any reports of laboratory grown giant puffballs.

I'm originally from wisconsin and we had a few of these GIANT puffballs. I remember frisbee disking and on several ocasions finding volleyball sized puffballs! There are enough spores within one of these sized balls to innoculate the entire planet...
