Can you tell me the name of this shroom?
    #4449042 - 07/25/05 01:37 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Hi,
I used to live in London and there was this huge fungus growing on the wall of the derelict building my little son and I lived in for a couple years.

It was sort of brownish. Its "leaves" were very broad and as I remember them, were the shape of Night Blooming Cereus leaves.

Do you have any idea what the name of this fungus is?

Or do you think it was something other than a fungus?

Thanks.

Try the mushroom hunting forum man, this is the wrong place for that.

Weclome by the way.  :smile:

Sounds like some form of bracket fungi to me.

What was the substrate it was growing from?

It's like, BY THE WAY, Check out my website and see if you want to buy anything. Forget about my attempt at an introduction and attempt to make a logical guess as to even the most simple basics of mushroom understanding.

Hi Phat,
Thanks.
I tried that but couldn't work out how it worked.

I have a bit of brain damage from several things, but most recently living in hydrogen sulfide from the part of a privy pit my condo was built over. Major yuck.

Thanks.

Just go read the FAQ in the mushroom hunting forum and then follow it's guidelines while making a post about the mushroom you're talking about.

It's cool man, I was confused as hell as well when I first started here... ironically on the exact same subject in almost the exact same way. :cheers:

That sounds like it for some reason.

It was growing on the wall, which I think was some major old kind of plaster. I think there was the wattle ... is that what it's called? The sort of irregular wooden bits to hold the plaster.

It was a really old building on Goswell Road, N1. London.

Thanks.

Maybe I can find some pictures of these and see if that's it.

Thank you a lot. :smile:

I'm working on a London subdomain...

I think that's the way to write the link.

Hi wap wap,
That's really beautiful.
I don't think it was beautiful as that. It was kind of awesome, but more because it was hanging out the way it was.

I think it was brown.

But the room was a bit dim, it's only light coming from the hole in the ceiling. (I think there was a little window, too.)

Boy you guys are fast in this forum!!!!!

Wow.  :smile:

thanks !!!!

Hey flow,
Sorry you misunderstood.
The info is valuable. I wouldn't have brain damage if I'd known that.

You can read all the info and keep and eye on your nails. All for free.

Wow that was sooo cool. I'm unclear how you find images in a row like that.

I really love mushrooms.

It's none of those.

You know there were a lot of these conical fungi growing on the stairs at ground level. I am sure they were fungi. They were in people's homes, too. Nice homes.

So now I'm wondering if the big big thing was maybe a fern, and not a shroom. None of the mushrooms seem to have "leaves" -- they all seem to be rather round, not long leaved.

Thank you so much for the images. They were really delightful. Than you!!!!!!

I don't think the thing you saw was a mushroom, mushrooms don't have leaves. You're probably right that it was a fern or something like that. Much more likely.

Hi Bo,
Well, it was then, too. I had a life tenancy because it was unfurnished, so the Worshipful Company of Brewers really wanted me to move so they could tear it down and build something new.

One day the old, old fire alarm, that you cranked, went missing. And about two days later the old building across the street burned down.

Coincidence????

But overall, we were much safer there than when we moved to this dynamite looking flat where the man downstairs was violent and sick.

sometimes things are not what they seem.

:smile:
