Substrate experiment

To curb Physarum Polycephalum's (for convenience known as Andi in our household) tendency to wander, I have used a ring of high-salt agar around its standard agar living quarters. This works fine, only is somewhat labor intensive to maintain and also harms Andi, who keeps burning itself trying to go where no slime mold went before. I experimented with four alternative substrates to replace the salty agar: 1. felt, thinking this would interfere with its creeping motion; 2. cardboard, which…See More

Clastoderma debaryanum

I occasionally find this distinctive species on strongly decayed wood on the ground. These fruiting bodies were part of a very extensive colony on a fallen stringybark (Eucalyptus obliqua). After doing some measurements we calculated that there were…

Cribraria cancellata

Cribraria cancellata is one of the easiest Cribrarias to identify because of its colour and distinctive peridial net. I find it every year in the summer months; this collection was found on a very strongly decayed Banksia marginata where it had…

"there is thickness as the second skin they can grow within it instead of spreading over a surface. However these are initial experiments and still need improvement in coding and design:)"

"Strange ! But it seem that the physarum get inside the body. Is it  bug in programmation or I've crossed my eyes ? François-Joseph ;-)"

"Hi Ian, sorry for the late reply, and thanks a lot. I am trying to see how I can use the game engine unity 3D for simulating slime mold. For that I require c#, which is pretty difficult for me to learn as an architect. I did some simulations with…"
