Ling Zhi Mushroom (Ganoderma Lucidum)

Looking at various species of mushrooms to base the life cycle from, I've eventually settled on the Ganoderma Lucidum (alternatively known as Ling Zhi or Reishi) species of fungi. In this way, not only does it sport a visual distinct look away from the typical generic image of a mushroom, it also has a vast history and reputation as the 'King of Herbs' or 'mushroom of immortality' with its amazing nutritional and remedial qualities.

The ling zhi mushroom tends to grow on trees or the base of the stumps, and releases it's spores on the underside pores with a smoke like effect.
