Fungifriday - When it is all over.

in Fungi Lovers11 months ago

Mushrooms have a very short life. They can sprout very fast as soon as the right conditions occur, just to mature, spread the spored and die right after. And the cycle repeats...

As I was walking around the park taking photos of all the pretty shrooms I found, on a way back I saw this little group. I can almost bet that by the next morning they will be just a messy, black patch on the ground.

Still worthy of some shots.

I hope many of you will join as there are only 2 simple rules:

  • when Friday comes post your own, original photo/drawing/art/food/anything-at-all of any type of fungi (yes, I will check and report stolen images!)

    That's all :)

last Friday I forgot it was Friday :P

haha :D

Ohhh I like that kitten /ᐠ.ᴗ.ᐟ\

I a in the process of learning more about the Fungi kingdom and one of the questions that I have is this: can a person buy mushroom spores like they can buy seeds that will grow plants?

You can buy them in some ready to go packs. I don't think spores on its own are available since they are just too small and maybe hard to store... not sure about that.

Thanks! Also I was thinking about the following question, plant breeders cross different plants and sell those seeds (every so often a new plant will come out) My question is this, is anybody trying to develop a new variety of mushrooms?

Thanks again!

I don't have a clue! I doubt they can be cross pollinated. They are not plant really.

You are correct in saying that Fungi are not the same as plants

Both the plant and fungus kingdoms have some common characteristics. ... - - While both are eukaryotic and don't move, plants are autotrophic - making their own energy - and have cell walls made of cellulose, but fungi are heterotrophic - taking in food for energy - and have cell walls made of chitin.- -

I guess that I was just thinking that some animals can cross breed, and plants can cross breed, so why cant mushrooms cross breed? ;)

hahaha I dunno :D
Never heard of that :))

yes! Oyster mushrooms are the way to go. Lions Mane also. there are bundles being on sale at Amazone for growing them at home.
