Photos taken yesterday of emerging mushrooms show how differently Reishi and Elm Oysters take shape. These two blocks starting producing mushrooms at about the same time, but looking very different. I thought I would try to track these photographically over the next few days. 

The thumb shown holdng the plastic open gives a sense of how tiny the Elm Oyster pinheads are.

At the same time this blob of primordial Reishi, in contrast, has no definite shape yet.
