Agrocybe Praecox

Updated: Aug 17, 2020

I find these fungi growing everywhere. They're called Agrocybe Praecox and supposedly they're bitter, but edible, with a floury flavor.


Using this I made a spore print.


When in doubt, don't handle fungi. Some can be toxic.




I have been enjoying finding relevant ways to incorporate the highly unusual configuration we call fungi:


  • Use in design as a material

  • Use to process and decompose waste

  • Use for flavor and texture in cooking

  • Use for medicine and healing

  • Use for reference as a system:

    • Dissemination / Spores

    • Organization / Mycellium

    • Structure

      • Built: Over hours, to years

      • Build: Gelatinous to flexible to fiberous to rock hard

      • Weight to Strength: Great ratio

      • Location: Located worldwide


They are quite the fascinating friends, and it is a delight whenever they spring up overnight in our garden. Fungi, rock.
