    Groovy, Beam! Definitely let us know if you find a source for spores for a bioluminescent mushroom.

    Years ago I was hanging out with my friends and we were looking to start up a bonfire. So we went into the edge of the woods to collect wood. I came across a rotting tree, so I tore it out of the ground. When I looked at the base of the stump that was ripped from the Earth I noticed it was glowing purple! Faintly, but it was glowing. So add purple glowing fungus to your list, but the green mushrooms maybe brighter. I only wish I had a camera and took a long exposure of the purple glowing fungi.

    WOW ... how cool is that !!

    And they also come in purple
    Really amazing.
    There is a type of perfection that transcends the quest for lumens. Buying a $250 1-cell light for "lum factor" is like buying a $250 single malt Scotch for the alcohol content.

    I prefer a warmer tint.
