Does Physarum Polycephalum decompose lignin and cellulose?
We're going to do something with physarum. At this time, we will search what smells physarum likes.
If some precedent study exist, please let me know!
We won a prize at small science fair with the topic about physarum pholycephalum. So we are going to participate bigger fair with same topic. I will share our project's activities on this website very soon. Thanks to every member about let me know the various information about slime. Thank you.
(Special thanks to ian.)

I'm doing some projects with physarum polycephalum but I confronted on some problems.
I bought oat flour(not a flake).
To feed them, I made oat porridge(25g oat/ 50ml water, sticky).
It's totally okay until second day of the experiement. But about on the third day, unknown white filamentous fungi grows on the oat porridge.
Maybe I think the reason is 'humid state of oat'.
But I want to do my experiment with oat flour(beacuse there are so much oat…Continue
I put sclerotia(thanks to ian) in a petri dish(with no medium) with wetted tissue then give them some cornflakes and let them in the warm and dark place. After two days, they grew up that take most place of petri dish. But after 4th days, they started to make spores. During that days, I just don't do anything except for exposing them in light for short times. what's wrong with them?
Before they make spores, i subcultured them to petri dish(with potato…Continue
I want to know more about the Physarum polycephalum. But I can't find anything about them on the Internet.
Is there anybody who know more about the Physarum polycephalum? Please share the website relate with it for me.
Hi. I am new member of slimoco. I'm going to start the small project about Physarum polycephalum.
So I want to ask you something.
(I am not that good at English. So please understand my messy post.)
First of the project, I'm going to observe the behavior of Physarum polycephalum.
And then analyze that to make a algorithm. Through that algorithm, I will make a code.
Q 1. To do that, maybe I must have the Physarum polycephalum.…Continue
