Not sure where you live, but source of spores can deliver spore syringes.

are these commercial mushrooms? If so, most commercial operations use almost senescent strains they have isolated so as to prevent people from stealing their genetics. 

In short - yes you can, but probably wont be worth the effort, if these are commercially produced.

@Mush Zombie so, would one take gill tissue, and go the Agar/isolation route? I would love to clone my first Cyan bed, that was the most fun I've had yet, such a wonderful mushroom, a nice trip, 5 to 7 grams was wonderful, 10 grams(dry) gave the wife Ego death (also changed her, she now is fighting to get out of her wheelchair, and keeps saying how she wants to go hiking)

      Hi I’ve recently just joined and I’m looking to start up growing some golden teachers I’m first off getting the grow kits but they seem abit to simple so after that I want to move on to something abit more complex and I just had a question, can you innoculate steralised grain bags and use a expandable twin chamber mushroom growing system? I understand they come with jars but I hear that it’s easy to contaminate and you don’t get a good enough yield so I was hoping to find a way to you the sterilised grain bags and to use the twin chamber but I’m unsure on how this could work and I can’t see anything on YouTube about it

      Oh awsome man! This has to be one of the coolest mushrooms I've ever seen out of a pot. Looks so yellow and fake I thought someone was playing a joke on me.
