Mushroom Extract

Question: Can I extract a mushroom and its mycelium in a Jar (Terrarium) and grow it? Like take the mushroom/dig it out and place it and its mycelium structure in a "jar"/terrarium and grow it?

Answer: Unlikely. The mycelium consists of many metres of very fine, delicate threads so it would be almost impossible to extract. However it you harvested some spores from the mature mushroom and gave them suitable conditions, they should grow. John H
