I have given up on growin shrooms. I think I don't care enough to make it happen correctly or something. I was gifted a startup pack twice, and just never managed to make it happen. Last time I got some Azurescens cultures, and got them spawned to popcorn ok, then they sat there for a month or more. When I got my garden soil, it was super rich compost, so I dug a hole in it, dumped in some soaked coco coir and the mycellium and buried it in the soil. I will keep an eye on that raised bed for a few years and hopefully at some point in the future it will fruit something.
I have had some special damn mushrooms just like you mention. Even a small amount gave me one helluva ride and when I asked if they were woodlovers, they just laughed and said, nope plain old cubes. I politely disagreed on the "Plain old" part because they were amazing. Good luck on your quest and sending mojo your way brother.
