This happens sometimes to even the most careful workers.  Try to get fresh
spore prints.  Try to use spore germination enhancers.  Some authors
suggest a number of chemicals.  

Here's and old chestnut: For Agaricus the gasses from metabolizing mycelium
has been considered useful.  Try to put a drop of agar on the top of the
dish and inoculate it with the mycelium of the fungus you are growing.
