If the last photo is of the inoculation site, looks like a combination of Coastal redwood and Lithocarpus needles/leaves/twigs for your cultivation site. Correct? I haven’t found A. augustus often enough to try cultivating it here: too much competition, I think.

ive done this a few times in the past and seen them grow, though before I was using spore slurries and a super soaker instead of chopping up the mushrooms as well

nice find!!! :-D
