    These grow symbiotically on living trees and so are not commercially grown. They are harvested from the wild. You can grow other mushrooms though:

    I did a deep dive to find an answer and it is No. Dried porcini is highly unlikely to contain live spores and mushrooms can not be grown from "cuttings". However, the spores are available online. Good luck.
