The paper at this link has some ideas in it. It seems they cultured the mites in 1:1 dead skin:yeast at 25 degrees C.

I don't have free access to the journal either. I would presume that the 1:1 skin:yeast is a mix of skin scrapings and yeast done on a weight per weight basis in an incubator of some sort with controlled humidity.

You probably won't need much to grow mites, they are pretty small.
