Spore-n?

I once asked Dáithí Sproule, "So if you're sexting, would that be phone-ication?" "That gets four stars out of five," he graciously allowed. I think he withheld the fifth just because he didn't come up with the bon mot himself.

As a cultivator I spent most of my time contemplating how to get my cultures to fruit. Sometimes it was a simple ´signal´like a change of ph, temperature, humidity, or introduction to a suitable bacterial culture. Sometimes it was dang near impossible. Sometimes it seemed like it might take a little soft lights and wine. . . :poke:
The false leather guys are creating an artefact from raw material: the mycelial ´mat´ made up of hyphae. They slaughter ´em. They don´t stand up to ´plasticising´ by solvents like ethylene glycol. Dead is dead. (Although there might be zombies. . .) :D

So the process isn't 100% environmentally friendly, then - potentially, anyway. But I see that ethylene glycol is readily biodegradable - 10 days when exposed to air - so maybe that's a plus. Disposal must have to be managed to at least some degree, though.
