Ramaria stricta

Post by Steve » Wed Oct 10, 2018 3:10 pm

Ramaria stricta - Upright Coral - is just one of the hundreds of kinds of fungi found on our local Sheffield allotments - the variety of substrates is huge. I have established a "fungus garden" in a quiet corner of our allotment, composed of logs and sticks on a thick bed of woodchip. Sometimes I see more fungi on the allotments than I do on a walk through the Peak District - especially the green desert of the White Peak.

HDR setting picks out the subtle colours which are important for Ramaria, very much so according to Corner

Ramaria are fun to do chemistry with. K = potassium hydroxide, Fe = Iron (II) sulphate
