The Blob – slime moulds / molds

David Beeson, December 2021

Some friends alerted me to a programme (The Blob) on BBC IPlayer about a most unlikely topic – slime moulds. If you have any curiosity about the oddities of this planet, this is the one to watch. You will be amazed.

Betty / Tony Rackham’s Dog’s Vomit slime mould. Fuligo septica from a Hampshire woodland.

I have grown these organisms in the past, but the TV programme can describe them better than me. Go on, search out The Blob.

But, see BOTANY 2 if you want more on slime moulds.
