Mushrooms are amazing. I firmly believe that they will play a key part in helping us humans clean up the mess we have made. 

 

There is even a mushroom that eats plastic that was found in South America, heavens know why it isn't being more thoroughly investigated. My attempts to contacts the universities involved with it's research has also failed.

Get on Facebook.  Leighton Bankes has the "plastic" eating strain for sale but it appears to be an exaggerated claim to some degree from my reading

Danielle gives workshops on it. She has successfully used oyster spawn to break down oily rags, diapers, food waste, etc. She does workshops too.

I suspect that any myc could be trained to eat plastic following a similar process, cigarette filters are mostly plastic after all.

I find it strange that we're surprised by this kind of discovery. 

 

How many of us mistakenly used an aluminum pan when laying out spawn for the first time?

Remember how the mycelium ate-up the aluminum at the sides of the culture? My first project was pin-holed and leaked water when misted. That was just cubensis mycelium.........oysters seem to eat just about anything.

I firmly believe that we are interacting with the interstellar biological engineering dept..........there is a fungi that makes dirt out of just about everything we know of..............

 

Dirt is life for us all............from it we come and to it we shall go.................

 

@Hanko............usually means that patents are being sought IME...
