Monotropa uniflora is a plant lacking chlorophyll. Happily thriving in the darkest spots in the woods, this plant dines on the mycelium of Russula mushrooms.
I share photos and book news in an irregular email newsletter. It's my way of saying hello and sharing some of the odd minutiae of our forests.
No charge. No list sharing. Just more and more myceliums . . . .
