Agroforestry-based approaches to mushroom cultivation are where it's at.

So many folx expending precious resources on complicated indoor setups when they could be growing in the forest / garden.

Most aspects of fruiting become more difficult indoors:

How do you manage temperature and humidity? How do you manage pests? What if a fan malfunctions and burns the place down? How do you pay for electricity / rent? What about contaminants and cleaning and chemicals? Etc.
