Grow tent for mixed grow?

I understand that if I'm a little tardy on the oyster harvest they'll get all spored up. But any other reason this might be a bad idea? The plants are on stainless shelving with T5 grow light banks which will be plenty for the mushrooms.

Trich loves soils... Mixing plants and mushrooms would be cool but you are going to find it difficult to manage without higher than typical contamination rates.

Tents seem to work great because they simulate their own room. The problem with having plants around a fungus grow is that pest that contaminate the plant will be more likely to get into the fungi and eat away at it.
I had this problem six months ago where I had gotten fungus gnats in my grow. At that time I was growing in bags and also an SGFC in a room with plants. When I watered the plants too much fungus gnats would be there and it was really not fun to see them get into the fungus. Also with plants that like a lot of water there will be more fungus gnats, not to mention the higher spore load by introducing plants into the tent. Perhaps if all of your fungus can fit into a tub fruiting chamber, that would be a cheap solution so your plants can have someplace warm. You could try a shadow box?
Now adays since I have a supply of sane to use, I will case my plants with sand so that less fungus gnats can get through the surface to breath.
