I love fungi. Most times I upload my nature photos to Flickr and just share them on the blog. On my last trip to the property, I was that impressed with the diversity of fungi that I shared some of them on my personal Instagram page.
A friend commented, sharing the Instagram page of The Spore Print Collective. I was fascinated and instantly showed mum. We looked at a couple of YouTube videos to learn how we could do similar.
I was getting ready to go home the next day when I noticed these fungi growing in mums backyard. Mum, Seth and I quickly found some paper to use (from scrapbooking) and carefully put the fungi on the paper in the spare room.
Nothing happened for days and we assumed that we had failed. This would have been understandable considering we didn’t really know what we were doing. Mum sent me these photos four days later. We are guessing that the room we had them in was too cold/damp, and that it needed to be drier for the spores to actually drop.
We will definitely be doing more experiments to learn as much as we can and hopefully create some art :).
