Incredible Mushrooms Newsletter, Issue #001 -- Mycelium in your Fitbit?
February 28, 2021

Welcome to the very first issue of the Incredible Mushrooms newsletter.

And thank you for signing up!

Each month I’ll be sharing some of the most interesting mushroom and fungi stories I’ve found around the web.

I’ll also let you know what’s new on the Incredible Mushrooms website.

Let’s jump right in…

Here are this month’s findings from around the web:

This first one, from The Guardian newspaper, definitely comes under the heading of “incredible”. Plantwatch: fungus creates fake fragrant flowers to fool bees

This second story is inspiring. At least, it is to me! I love how someone had the imagination to repurpose unused underground parking lots into spaces to grow mushrooms. Paris is Turning Its Dark Underground Parking Lots into Organic Mushrooms Farms

And here’s a story that’s perhaps the most incredible of all. It looks like engineers are figuring out how to replace some of the electronic components in fitness trackers with mycelium! Processors in Tech Wearables like Fitbits Could Be Replaced Using Mushroom Mycelium

Mycelium from which mushroom? From the Oyster mushroom, which is one of my favorites. One of my most recent posts is all about Oyster mushrooms, and includes a reference to biowearables. Oyster mushrooms – perhaps the most underrated mushroom of them all.

That’s it for this issue.

I’ll be back with more mushroom and fungi stories in a few weeks.

Best wishes,


Incredible Mushrooms
