You can use the plugs as you would use grain spawn pretty much. colonization of cardboard and paper and toilet paper are all quite fast

If you're interested in cardboard technology, I suggest you obtain a copy of Paul Stamets' Mycelium Running.

If the cardboard is relatively new and clean and you're growing outdoors, I've found that pasteurization is unnecessary.  This is one project I have going right now.

I had one quart jar of wine cap stropharia grain spawn to work with.  I took a mixture of water and hyrdrogen peroxide (10:1) and sprayed cardboard sheets down with it.  It takes a while for liquid to soak in, so this was repeated every ten minutes or so until the cardboard sheets could be seperated.  I ended up using about ten sheets of 1' square cardboard, which was allowed to grow out until fully colonized.  So about a week ago I filled a couple of burlap sacks with wood mulch after lining them with the cardboard sheets.  They're sitting under a tarp in a shady spot to colonize over winter.  Once the bags are fully colonized, I hope to sell one of them to a local farmer and use the other to seed a new garden bed in my back yard.

Wait, does this even make sense? :grin:
