Or the mycelial fruit bodies are, via the USPS or UPS, not sure which. On my life’s list of goals has been to find and photograph bioluminescent mushrooms in the wild. I love mushrooms; I love glowing things. Together, and it’s like a beautiful woman who also happens to be really smart: the best of all worlds (yes, Ariel, I mean you). However until that dream comes true I’ve decided to take some initiative and buy a “grow your own glow mushrooms” kit. Here’s a pic of the final product from the manufacturer:
When the kit arrives, I’m going to document the growing process. I can’t wait. I envision reading in bed and gazing over to my shelf full of curiosities. On it will be the terrarium of glowing mushrooms!
Also on the fungal front, I finally photographed a mushroom in the wild I’ve been yearning to encounter: the Stinky Squid.
I’m not sure which species it is exactly, but I’m happy with it anyway. This character was only about 1/4″ tall, and looked a lot like a rooster claw. And like the Latticed Stinkhorn, it attracts insects with its bad smell. They in turn spread its spores far and wide.
