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.

:D
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.

I am certain Katy has a more than passing familiarity with the writings of my buddy Paul Stamets, whom I have nick-named ´St. Paul of the Mushrooms´, the owner of Fungi Perfecti. Paul led me down the ´garden path´ to becoming a part-time shii-take grower, provisioner to the kind of restaurants I can´t afford to eat in. . .
He has been an early and influential proponent of ´myco-ecology.´ He proposed setting up successive sawdust berms colonized by Stropharia to clean up polluted water running off from dairy farms into Puget Sound. This eased a conflict between the dairy farmers and the state ecology board seeking to protect the salmon fishery. Win-win. No pollution and the Farmers got a secondary crop of high protein livestock feed from the mushrooms sprouting from the berms.
Nano, I hope you know you are in an area with many people growing shii-take in the traditional Asian log-culture method.
