If you are looking to learn more about mushrooms then you have come to the right place. Here we explore the world of fungi (mushrooms) and discuss the things you’ve always wanted to know. In this blog about mushrooms you will find a multitude of information on growing, harvesting, foraging, cooking and storing mushrooms for later use.
Fungi are organisms, including microorganisms like yeasts, moulds and mushrooms. These organisms make up the fungi kingdom and there are over 100,000 of species recorded to date. Of which, 50,000 are known to produce a fruiting body that we know very well as mushrooms.
Mushrooms come in many shapes and forms. Some mushrooms are edible, while others can be poisonous to humans. The sole purpose of a mushroom is to produce and spread spores that will mate and form new colonies of mycelium.
Mycelium is the network of cells that make up these fungi organisms. It consumes nutrients from the growing medium to sustain it’s life cycle and eventually produce mushrooms, or spores that will become new forms of life.
Another interesting thing about Mycelium is that it can communicate and has it’s own language that’s used to transfer information to and from other species of fungi and plants. This network of information can be used among plants to transfer nutrients, or information such as diseases that may be present nearby.
