yes, this does exist, ive seen it, i dont know much about it tho, its not ethenogenic, i think it has something to do with healing, basically you grow it on a liquid substrate and it forms as a fungal layer floating on the top, apparently the underside has basdiums or so ive heard therefore making it a mushroom. there is no stipe, the texture of it is very mushroomy aside from the obvious weidness of the growing style, when harvested these are peeled up off of the water (i think) in layers and continue to grow, my friends mom used to grow these but keep in mind it was a while ago and i dont remember all the details very well, the was really into herbalism and smoking pot tho, and ive spent a great many nights hanging with my buddy smoking and growing pot with the help of his mom :smile: (she tends to bogart harvests tho, oh well)

here at the katimavik HQ in goderich Ontario im holding a bag of commercially packaged "dried black fungus" that comes from the golden banyan trading co in china.
they are flat and potato-chip like. white and fuzzy on one side, and brown to black and smooth on the other, when dried they gnarl up into weird shapes. i immagine the last group of katimavictims to stay at this group-home must have picked these up in torontos chinatown district.

Never heard of anything like this !
I maybe a little cynical, but is she talking about a mushroom (species of fungi) or some kinda plant ?
Peeling of layers of a mushroom would probably damage it irrevocably..
But then thats my opinion !
Peace

She told me it was a mushroom but I'm not certain.

Actually Crystal is growing Kombucha. Its not really a mushroom although it is called one. It is actually a floating gelatinous mass composed of yeasts and bacteria. It is propogated by placing on a tea and sugar solution in open bowls. As the mass gets larger it seperates into layers that can be placed in new bowls of tea. The tea solution is fermented by the Kombucha and is drank as a healing liquid. It is claimed to cure everything from baldness to cancer, but is actually quite toxic. For an excellent article on Kombucha and what Paul Stamets thinks of it, check the following URL.

Last night this question was really stressing me out so I thought Id call her and ask her over the telephone. When she told me about this mushroom at school she had no idea about the specifics so thats why I thought I'd ask here. She says that you dont eat the mushroom because thats what is toxic NOT the tea, and that some sort of slime grows and you can make that into a tea as well. She says its really nasty and looks like a "puss bubble". Thanks for all the help!

Workman is correct,
My mother is growing it. It is indeed a colony of yeasts and bacteria that flourishes and reproduces in tea. This process ferments the tea giving it alleged medicinal properties.

Stamets however cautions people against it since it also needs a sterile environment.

hope dat helps
