Not entirely true. You'll want to check out the following reference,
along with the other key papers that it cites:
Tan, Yee How, and David More. 1992. Convenient and effective methods for
in vitro cultivation of mycelium and fruiting bodies of Lentinus edodes.
Mycological Research 96 (12):1077-1084.
Mycol. Research is a British publication, most university libraries worth
their salt should have it. -RSW
