Geastrum britannicum: A World First

Much excitement then as an Earthstar I found in 2000 and have recorded annually ever since, (always convinced it wasn't just a variant of the Rayed Earthstar), has finally been shown through DNA testing to be a completely new species not known anywhere else in the world!

Stinkhorn Phallus impudicus

I planted an unhatched egg from a foray late 2014 into a bed of sawdust in the greenhouse and watered frequently. Nothing happened for 2 weeks then voila! out shot a Stinkhorn one night. Not very scientific but rewarding nevertheless. For those of you who want to try this at home you require:

1 x Greenhouse
1 x Sawdust mixed with soil and woodchip, rich humus
1 x Stinkhorn egg 
Water
Warmth
1 x Clothes Peg or Breaking Bad style ventilator mask
