One of the advantages to growing a wide variety of fungi is that no matter
what the media tells you, you can still usually get a crop of mushrooms out of
it. Just roll the newspaper into a roll, let stand in a pail with some water
in the bottom, and inoculate with Pleurotus ostreatus (Oyster mushroom). An
excellent method of recycling, and pretty effective at degrading dioxin and
PCP, DDT also.
