Growing Your House with Mycelium — 4 Comments

  1. Fascinating! I wonder how moisture resistant it is, seeing it outdoors. I know the cell walls of mushrooms is made of chitin, the same substance the exoskeleton of insects is made of, and imagine the mycelium would be too. Having seen the undigested wing cases of beetles in fox poo, I would imagine the stuff to be acid proof too. I’ve also seen mycelium being used for growing garments, at least experimentally. And you could eat the byproduct.
