Mushrooms, not just for dinner anymore!

Here's something different: using mushroom mycelium to form bricks! How he do that?

GWN, I agree. Besides, I don't see where they indicate what type of mushroom and its mycelium were used (probably pending patent). Could be types we really, really don't want to eat!

One of the descriptions gave the variety: Reishi. Personally not liking the taste of mushrooms, I find this use fascinating. I am interested to know the insulating properties as opposed to concrete or clay brick. Very imaginitive use of fungus!

What they don't say is the invasive pests that go with a damp living breathing fungi bed nor the stink of it as it slowly decays .
Perhaps it's not something you could have indoors especially if you have a male dog or cat that can get a close shot at .

Our old neutred moggy was caught in the act one day backing upo to the box of mushrooms in the cellar and letting fly a full stream of pee. The old sod also washed a large glass vase of crysanth's stood on a side table right by the arm chair with a well aimed shot from the arm one evening . Embarassed
