How to make a mycellium for mushrooms production??
Anybody?? >>

	If you are going to do it yourself, the basic idea 
in starting mycelium is that you either 
1) start with mushroom spores, and germinate 
them on nutrient medium in a sterile container, or 
2) you start with a fresh young mushroom and break 
it open, then cut a bit of inner tissue out with a sterile knife and place it
on sterilized nutrient medium to grow.
	If you don't want to do it yourself, there are
companies on the net that may sell cultures to you.
The difficulty is getting cultures past customs
officials who may want to open the cultures 
to inspect them, allowing contaminants to enter.
