Fungi Friday: The giant polypore shows up.

01.jpgThere you are doing your duties and eating away at that stump. You might have bitten off more than you can chew. On second thought, I'd feel worried about the stump based on the little I know about fungi.


02.jpgA side view of the giant polypore. They look pretty giant to me. They'll need to be to ingest all this plant matter in the forest.


03.jpgDid you ever see the movie The Blob? I'm having some flashbacks here. Constantly moving and consuming. We need someone to do this work but try not to consume too many humans along the way.


04.jpgWe know that fungi can talk based on the chemical reactions that occur. This batch must be saying something like: "Good eats over here, come have your fill!".


05.jpgThe classic overhead viewpoint. They're very fascinating in their own way. I'm trying not to disturb them during dinner but then again they're always eating. The etiquette here is confusing.


06.jpgBased on their shape they seem to pick up anything that passes by. Fluff, leaves and anything else that might cross their path. Luckily I haven't seen any garbage stuck to them yet. They might eat it I suppose, you never know.


07.jpgBig twig alert. This comes with the territory and I had to get the shot anyhow. This makes it artistic right?


08.jpgI'm also thinking of a chocolate fountain based on the structure. I wonder if mushrooms and chocolate work together? Both can be very spendy based on the quality. I'll need to delve into this further at some point.


09.jpgThey do love to flock together. A full party by the looks of it and I can't blame them. An entire stump will keep them nourished for a long amount of time.


10.jpgI hope they all brought their appetite. Meals for days, weeks or even months. They better have a well stocked bar too. The DJ is dropping by later to queue up the music. The is going to be the event of year for sure!

Your meditation about their life on a tree stump is faszinating. It looks a little bit like a town with terraces build up from micro aliens.
Would be a way to heal our earth, minimalzing each being to micro size?

You're so right, they do look like a town from above. Thanks for the recipe, they say the mushroom in the chocolate doesn't overpower the taste so that's good to know. I've never heard of mushroom powder as an ingredient before, I'll need to read more about that.

Do you know The Smurfs? I'd love to find their village since they live in mushrooms. Pretty cool to me.

Haha die Schlümpfe! Thats what they are called here. Papa Schlumpf and Schlumpfine the girl.
Always loved those kind of houses, like the Hobbit houses, from the Lord of the Rings, with the round doors :-) Would love to build me such a house, but in this civilcation you are not alowed to live in mushroom houses ;-)

I know dried mushrooms, so why not powder them down? Let me know about your first homemade mushroomchoci!

Thank you for visiting and the fungi appreciate it too.

They were asking about you the other day, I said you were fine and cleaning up the property a bit. They said to watch where you step, their kind are always in the most curious spots 😀

I guess they noticed with disgust that "the Uncle" took up all their tree stump homes last fall ! 😲 There was nothing I could do to stop it. Not sure how far they will have to go to recolonize. Awful !... just awful I say.
