Mycena Family With Roots

Artist's Description

This little cluster of a Mycena mushroom speciest shows the mycelium which is the root system that is actually the main body of the fungi.
When one sees a mushroom, that’s only the ‘fruit’ of a fungi body…the roots that are in the ground/wood other host……are the main body.
Often I talk to people who tell me they put ‘plugs’ in their trees to ‘cure’ them of some sort of bracket fungi….sadly? All they’re doing is giving it medicine…but not the cure.
Mycelium from a species of Honey mushroom has been recorded to be around 5 MILES long…..the largest known fungi in the world!
