The mushroom mycelium will die when the temperature reaches 0 if you want to slow down growth use a fridge

In winter, in nature, I think only the spores survive.

Also, "in the wild" myc grows deep into the soil.  The myc at the surface is killed off by the cold, but the strands that are deeper are not frozen.  When it warms up, they reextend themselves up toward the heat.  Nature finds a way.  The clinical lab version, not so much.
