Start with a small patch of area where you can observe mycelial growth. There is no reason why you should ‘lose’ a mushroom species that you’ve introduced, unless it is not in a compatible environment. If it’s in happy growth conditions it should stay forever.
Starting with a small patch would ensure more intentional observation and acclimatizing the species to your environment.
