Not yet. I plan to eat two of the ones in the photo. The other, smaller pins I left rooted, so they can mature. Maybe I will go back for them. I am guessing they will be prime in 3-6 days.

I’ve tried that method with countless species, though not with A. augustus.

I thought of doing exactly that, however I did not feel like transporting half-rotten mushrooms, and I live in San Francisco…. I would have had to make an extra trip to find a suitable substrate, so I decided to just leave them.

you should try
