Spirit Fungus Quiz

You got: The Termite Fungus

The Collaborator: willing to work with others and emotionally intelligent. Some species of termites cannot fully digest cellulose. Instead, using roughly chewed and only slightly digested plant material, these termites make a small-ventilated structure - the fungus comb or garden - on which the mycelium of the fungus grow. This friendly fungus has the unique strength of collaboration and is able to work with other organisms to find mutually beneficial solutions.

You got: Pilobolus

The Motivator: highly energetic, spontaneous and life of the party. Poetically referred to as the “Fung in the Dung”, this very special fungus may live in poop, but is undoubtedly one of the most elegant fungi in the entire kingdom. The pilobolus is most famous for it’s “water cannon” spore dispersal. As the pilobolus matures, water pressure builds in the stalk of it’s body until the tip explodes, launching its spore towards the sun. With an elegant, glass like figure, it’s no wonder why people write poems about this unique fungus.

You got: The White Truffle

The Mediator: completely altruistic, fully invested in the group and a peacemaker. The truffle fungus known to many gourmet chefs as the “diamond of the kitchen” is a shy yet incredibly tasty fungus. These packets of flavor grow their fruiting bodies underground, thus can only be found with trained dogs or pigs, which find the truffles by their smell. White truffles in particular are extremely rare, selling at the extremely steep price of 2000$/lb. Tom Colocchio, a famous gourmet chef, once said “I love all mushrooms I cook with, but the white truffles are something completely different. There’s nothing else like them.”

You got: The Rust Fungus

In the late summer, the rust fungi disperses its spores by wind. These spores infect a plant species known as the Arabis (Brassicaceae). During the winter, the infection slowly spreads throughout the meristematic tissue of the plant, eventually taking full control of the plant’s growth center. As a result, the infection radically changes the morphology of the plant. The rust fungus prevents the host plant from making normal leaves, and instead makes modified leaves that are bright yellow and resemble flowers. These modified leaves are covered in a sticky, sweet smelling substance that attracts insects to the plant including bees, butterflies and flies. Changes in morphology of the infected Arabis plant were observed to have twice as many leaves, twice as many leaf rosettes and were also twice as tall.
