Ganoderma applanatum (Artist?s conk)?
    #2907704 - 07/20/04 09:37 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

This mushroom is very bountiful in my area, but I haven?t found very much information on its medicinal properties. Does anyone have any experience and/or information on this mushroom? I?ve been very impressed by the effects of my home-grown reishi mycelium + mushrooms and I?m hoping that this one will have similar effects. I?m thinking of adding Medicinal Mushrooms by Christopher Hobbs to my library, but I?m looking for other sources too.

G australe is a common species here and for all intents looks identical to G applanatum

Yesterday I tried some mushroom tea made from 0.5L water and 21grams of fresh macerated Ganoderma applanatum fruitbody steeped in hot water for 15 minutes. I experienced effects similar to Ganoderma lucidum, but less intense.

What exactly are those effects and do you feel them instantly?

I feel energized and alert without the jitteryness and gut-rot of excess caffeine. It takes a few minutes for the effects to set in.

I don?t have any medical problems, but I find that Ganoderma lucidum helps with cold virus symptoms, sports injuries and lethargy. I will experiment more with Ganoderma applanatum.

Here?s a list of 18 medicinal mushrooms (including G. lucidum and G. applanatum) and their therapeutic effects by Paul Stamets.

Here are two pics I took of this mushroom growing on a dead willow.

Found this piece of text from IN THE COMPANY OF MUSHROOMS by ELIO SCHAECHTER.

Quote:

For all we know, mushroom eating may be an ancient biological attribute of humans since it is also a trait of our evolutionary cousins, the mountain gorillas. Dian Fossey, who studied gorillas in the wild for decades, found that a species of bracket fungi was eagerly consumed by the gorillas she studied. The fungal species is called Ganoderma applanatum, also known as the artist's fungus because the whitish undersurface of the shelf becomes dark on touch and can be used for drawing (although I suspect that the gorillas are indifferent to this fact). Fossey writes in her book, Gorillas in the Mist:


The shelflike projection is difficult to break from a tree, so younger animals often have to wrap their arms and legs awkwardly around a trunk and content themselves by only gnawing at the delicacy. Older animals who succeed in breaking the fungus loose have been observed carrying it possessively from more dominant individuals' attempts to take it away. Both the scarcity of the fungus and the gorillas' liking of it cause many intragroup squabbles, a number of which are settled by the silverback, who simply takes the item of contention for himself.


Except for different table manners, this description does justice to the affinity that some of us have for wild mushrooms.
