seems like the experiment of growing oyster mushrooms on simple recycled cardboard is going good, they are pinning easily... not sure how nutritious they'll come up to be though. Any idea on how the boost it?

@arteteco Prettty neat. Wish I knew more about mycology to help you out there.

@arteteco Is that pure cardboard or are you mixing anything else in? I often see people suggesting used coffee grounds with cardboard, mostly to boost the N/C ratio a bit but it might improve other nutrients as well.

I've been growing mine on a mix of junk mail and garden trimmings, which is more about what I have available than what the mushrooms want. I just finished my third fruiting and yields have been pretty variable.
