After seeing the video 'Can We Grow Amanitas?': I did some digging and found that several Amanita species (including Amanita Muscaria) have been grown in the lab; both with and without inoculation of trees. I searched 'amanita culture' on Google Scholar and found multiple downloadable PDFs.
Note that most of the papers don't list culturing/growing them as the subject of their paper, but as a method listed in the paper. Also, the term 'pure isolate' also refers to mycelium cultures. Some of these papers are for growing other Amanita species but I decided to include them for further information on growing methods.
Some of the media/substrates I saw were Modified Melin-Norkrans Medium (MMN), Potato Dextrose Agar (PDA), and Malt-Extract Agar (MEA).
Here are some sources (all of which can be downloaded for free via Google Scholar):
