A test to explore mycelium behaviours on a substrate made by hemp fiber and (bio)Plastic. Once Pleurotus is sufficiently grown, petri capsula was opened to let it air-dry.
Results show an high tensile strength fibrous composite.
(bio)plastic recipe: #2.1
mycelium: POS 1 _ Pleurotus Ostreatus
Sample #2.0A | hemp fiber and Pleurotus Ostreatus
How does the mycelium explore boundaries and build bridge connetions from landscape morphology?
This test allows to understand mycelium’s behaviours of growth through PLA substrate.
To do that a 3d printed mask was insert into a petri dish before the sterilization.
