How Did These Mushrooms Grow Like This ?
« on: 16/02/2012 18:16:29 »
Dearest Mushroomologists,

As a sheepie I of course luff mushrooms !...gawwd dammit..I just totally luff them !...All I ever think about is mushrooms from the moment I awake to the time I fall asleep.... At this moment I am cooking Chicken In Riesling wine shallot , mushroom and cream sauce in the slow cooker....It's been slow cooking for six hours !..oh my gawwwd !!!....*le yum*

Mushrooms as ewe know were invented in 1983 by a very fun guy in Portobello Road.

I dare say that when he invented them that he could not imagine in his wildest dreams the monstrosity that I unearthed today !...an abberational freak of nature unseen of anywhere in the whole Universe ! (that's rather large ya know ?...bigger than a car park ! )

Look for yourself..but be warned...it's a shocking malformed derangement of truncated mutilation !






An abnormality of Biblical proportions !



See ?...Can ewe bear to look at it ?....Mary Shelley had nothing on this grotesque absurdity !



Help me understand this ?


How could this happen ?...Surely this is two separate mushrooms but how did they grow and join at the bulby end?.....Sheesus !..I can barely look at it !


Please do what ewe can to ease the suffering torment in my mind..I must know how this happened so that I can tell the world and hope that nothing like this ever happens again !


Hugs and shmishes

mwah mwah mwah


Neil
It's Alive !

Siamese mushrooms  :)

Looks similar to natural grafting in plants ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inosculation

I'm wondering if you've discovered Mushroom Cancer, or Mushroom Embryonic Stem Cells.

Assuming, of course, these grew naturally, and were not specifically created in a lab setting.

Inoculation eh ?

Inosculation, (same origin as the Latin for Kiss).

That explains it! I always wondered why people were inoculating mushrooms.

You can buy a log inoculated with mushrooms ... http://shiitakemushroomlog.com/

[ an excellent gift for people you don't like : here's a half-rotten log ].

Actually, thinking about this.
RD is probably right.

I was thinking that the mushroom was springing a second root from the "leafy part"...

Except, with the mushroom, the part we see above ground is the fruiting body, and grows entirely from the root structure below ground. 

So, the smaller mushroom could not spring out as a second branch of the first.

I.E.  If one saw two apples grown together, one would not expect the second apple had grown a whole new tree.

So...  Inosculation it is.  :)

Self grafting eh ?....but why does the article relate to just trees ?....do you think this could happen to flowers...and you'd think you'd see it happen all the time to grass !

Grass just does not live long enough, and would be hard to see in any case ( Sheepy has eaten the evidence you see) amongst the green sward.

Another mushroom is here

Dreadfully sorry, old bean, but I’m afraid I really can not have any sympathy for you. One would have hoped that by now you should have known that yours truly simply cannot resist cracking a corny old joke. This quest for enlightenment was, not to put too finer point on it, asking for trouble.

Might one suggest that your future enquiries are suitably vetted for connotations which would give rise to further publication of corn by this particular author.

I remain your obedient servant

This is true......the door to jocular knickknackery had been made ajar. Twas inevitable that ewe'd look through the keyhole and glimpse the light of the sun of caperism !  Then egress through that cavity to land of Chortley Guffaw !
