PROJECT MUSHROOM - Page 6



A mushroom is the fruit of the fungi. Its only job is to spread
spores into the environment. Once a spore finds the perfect
environment in which to flourish, it starts growing hyphae. These
are long filamentous strands which spread out into the
substrate. The hyphae secrete enzymes which break down the
log (or toenail) on which it is living and then absorb these
nutrients. Hyphae organise themselves into a mat like network
called mycelium. The mycelium is like the tree, with the
mushroom being just the fruit or bloom.
Mycelium networks are very strong and have the ability to
breakdown all kinds of materials - including hardwoods and
rock. They can also grow very very large....
