It seems like a silly question, but is there any reason I can't grow several types of fungi in the same garden area? I currently have wine caps, but I was thinking of growing a few other types. Possibly a primary decomposer.

Many many species with co-habitat

Try some Shaggy Manes (Coprinus comatus) with your Garden Giants (Stropharia rugoso-annulata). They fruit at different times of the year

A primary decomposer typically will not do super well in a mulch situation. Though; it is "doable"(ish)

Here's a kit I planted last year with a polyculture of garden fungi: http://www.fungi.com/product-detail/product/the-three-amigos-garden-pack.html

So far none have come up, but I will try again! Also I know I must be more patient because some times it takes a year or more for them to appear.

I was thinking a primary decomposer, because I have a large amount of woody materials in my mulch, and it would fill a different nitche than my current type.

I am planning on growing different kinds of oysters on Wood, standing up, partly buried vertically. I will grow the King Stropharia and Hypsizygus Ulmarius in the garden and Shaggy Manes in the garden too. Shiitake will be stacked, probably on my trampoline in the shade. They are in that sense, all in the garden.
