Off topic, but just a thought...

After researching the disciplines and complexities of cultivating shrooms, I'm left wondering...

How the HELL do these little bastard ever spawn in the wild!!??... :wtf:

Sorry, but I just had to ask. Does anyone know what the percentage of spore survival rate is in their natural environment?

I will never look at mushrooms the same - every one I see in the wild will seem to me to be a miracle...

Even as the nineteenth century had to come to terms with the notion of human decent from apes, we must now come to terms with the fact that those apes were stoned apes. Being stoned seems to have been our unique characteristic.

But you only need one spore to start a whole colony. And often when there are shrooms its in an environmet where it thrives ie. a grazing fields for cows with lots of perfect homes for a spore.

It takes more than just one, its actually somewhat of a miracle it happens at all.

it takes two minimum. a single spore will start mycilium growth but it takes two seperate mycilium networks to make shrooms.

a miracle indeed--as with all forms of life...the more you learn about it the more it will make your head spin-especially when considering that all of it happened by random chance over lots and lots of time. WHOA gotta lay down
