BIG Reishi + other fungi pics
    #1781317 - 08/05/03 12:55 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

went for a hike yesterday and found this beauty.



I almost didn't want to take it because i wanted to see how much bigger it would have gotten but i knew that if i didn't that the next time i went down the same trail , it would be gone or at the least vandalized.
so here it is in my hand! this is the biggest and freshest reishi i have come across yet.


here is an older smaller one that i left after finding the BIG one:


can anybody ID this?

I cut a small piece off one of them and it cut like butter, the inside is just like the outside.

That second one looks like another Ganoderma. As it gets bigger the redness will develop.
I'm not entirely sure how to age a growing Ganoderma, but I'd wager there are at least a couple of growing seasons on that sucker. Some of the bigger ones out in the woods can be a half dozen years old. Stamets has found some shelf fungi fruitbodies out on the Olympic Penninsula that were some amazing age, decades or more if I remember right.

Some ganoderma are perennial and last for several years. G. lucidum is not one of those though, so he was probably talking about G. applanatum or something.
