    As far as the stinkhorn not working what did you try? Whatever process you did to inoculate an area it may be a very long time before you ever see a first mushroom, possibly a year or more. What you don't see is the mycelium underground (or inside a piece of wood) growing and spreading it's fibers throughout the substrate, then the conditions have to be right for fruiting i.e. creating the "mushroom".

    Looks like this is a wood growing species so if you used a large portion of orchid bark, mulch or other wood product in your terrarium substrate you may have better luck than simply squirting a syringe into an all peat or coir substrate.

    I had mushrooms popping up for some time in my anole terrarium which is about 70% bark and 30% sphagnum peat but I didn't do anything to get them they just came and went several times until they exhausted themselves. They haven't come back in a few years now. There were shaggy orange ones, tall conical white ones and very small skinny gray ones. They only lasted a day or two and then they'd melt down.
