Dang Darcie what kinda shrooms do you have where your at?
They sound deadly... Im picturing in my head a vast wasteland of dead plants killed from parasitic spores.
Here in Washington we have tons of shrooms since we live in darn near constant rain and I have never heard of that one and believe me Ive known quite a few people to take shrooms home and grow them of course they contain them like in a tank/terrarium to keep the humidity up in a semi dark place. Like anything you woud have to get them to adapt to thier new place gradually such as keeping them outside where they wouldnt go into shock. They realy arent as tempermental as CPs. And unless you dig one up from one state and move it to an entirely different one the climates are the same.
Im not sure as why they would have dead root hairs if you dig around the shroom in one big dirt clump take the clump and put it into a terrarium Ive done it before and have yet to kill or even realy see a root for that matter you dont expose them at all. Even if they do die they release thier spores and Walla new shrooms apear.
My suggestion Zack is to get a kit so you dont release the spores into the air or contain them like do your transplanting outside away from your other plants into a closed or semi closed like a fish bowl or one of the terrariums they sell here. That way the spores dont go flying around when its time for them to be released. If you do the transplanting remember to wipe everything down and wash your hands to get all of the spores off.
Its pretty simple realy
