About True 2 Mushrooms
Our Passion for Mycology
At True2Mushrooms.com, we immerse ourselves in mycology, the study of fungi, with great ardor. From the microscopic beginnings of spores and the intertwining networks of hyphae to the complex structure of mycelium, we explore the intricate lifecycle of mushrooms and other fungi. We appreciate fungi’s role as decomposers and their saprophytic lifestyle, aiding in the natural cycle of life.
Edible, Medicinal, and Beyond
We’re enthusiasts of all types of mushrooms – from edible varieties that enrich our cuisine to medicinal mushrooms hailed for their potential health benefits. Our knowledge extends to the anatomy of these fascinating organisms, covering everything from their caps, gills, and stipes to the basidia where spores form.

We delve into mushrooms’ symbiotic relationships with other organisms, such as mycorrhizal relationships with plants and their transformation into lichen when paired with algae. We also explore fungi’s less savory side, discussing fungal infections and the appropriate fungicides.
