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)

      Pretty crappy quality pic, but, everything was white.  Started GT spores on agar here 6 days ago.  Took pic in still air box, may be contaminated now but who knows, I'll find out soon enough.   Cut into 6 pieces.  1 went into a jar of LC, 5 went into WBS jars. Going to be doing another round of WBS and 1 LC in the next week or two, whenever my PES hawaiin spores get here from different vendor.

      I'm back. Nd yeah absent thoughts i got a super nice pinset going now no casing layer! on 3rd flush, also made a super clean LC. Strain is PF CLASSIC. I did make a print from the GT i doubt the sterility of it though so im not wasting any time with that yet.. Things are moving along

      Parts per million and electrical current of the water.  Measured before you feed and after(after is measured through runoff).  You can buy a meter to test water with nutrient solution.  Although there is a K.I.S.S. method that wirks fine amd you dont need meters and a lot of water testing.  Just get Maxibloom and weigh out 7 grams per gallon of water, or use flora Nova bloom as directed.  With a ppm/EC meter you can fine tune exactly how much nutes your plants are getting for perfect dosage of the nutrients if you will.
