"Wow! Utterly fascinating. An excellent demonstration of Physarum propagation. Bravo. However, I would have liked to see its progress all the way until the end. It looked like it might have had another growth 'explosion' or two in it before…"
"I don't think Slime mold Die, the great thing is that they can sort of decide whether or not the environment is friendly or hostile enough for it to activate itself into a vibrating plasmodium. I would say its an ongoing negotiation. "
What is your interest in slime moulds? (we need to know you're not a bot or spamster)
I think slime molds are awesome, for all the obvious reasons. I am doing projects with a sample of Physarum Polycephalum (notions of individuality do not seem to apply to these organisms, and I prefer to think of it as a single worldwide organism). I love to learn and share.
