thecoldmagnetearth asked: Not likely that they'll grow in your terrarium, those are just the "fruiting-bodies" of the mushrooms (think flowers, sort of). Their purpose is to to release the mushroom's spores, and then most shrivel up and die within a few days or weeks. The permanent structure of most fungi are the mycelium (think roots) which can form massive webs that decompose organic matter. The good news is those may introduce new spores to your terrarium, which already has tons of mycelium living in it naturally!

Yeah, I was talking to a local lady and she said something to that effect- though not as comprehensive. Thanks for the info! ^-^
After a little research, I don’t think I have the time to undergo the process of introducing them (what they will become?) to my terrariums. You’re right- they wouldn’t do well, even as they are and I dont want to up the humidity in my current terrariums for something that’s only going to last a short time. … Don’t think my ferns would like that.
But! I have bookmarked a few pages in the hope that in the future, I’ll have the opportunity to do a new terrarium geared toward mushrooms and the like!
I’ll keep the little creepers in a jar for now, see how they get on over the next few weeks. See what I can learn?

Bring consent out of the bedroom. I think part of the reason we have trouble drawing the line “it’s not okay to force someone into sexual activity” is that in many ways, forcing people to do things is part of our culture in general. Cut that shit out of your life. If someone doesn’t want to go to a party, try a new food, get up and dance, make small talk at the lunchtable—that’s their right. Stop the “aww c’mon” and “just this once” and the games where you playfully force someone to play along. Accept that no means no—all the time.

But most of those who are “addicted” to their phones or computers are actually focused on staying connected to friends in a culture where getting together in person is highly constrained.


…The ability to access public spaces for sociable purposes is a critical component of the coming of age process, and yet many of the public spaces where adults gather – bars, clubs, and restaurants – are inaccessible to teens.


…A gap in perspective exists because teens and parents have different ideas of what sociality should look like.

Look what I found!!!!!!
Dad says they’re called morels? I’m going to try to put them in my terrarium. They look like coral!
Update, not morels. But I think they’re a look alike? (Non edible) beefstake mushroom? Not sure.
Hm. Or a white coral mushroom? Looks much more likely. Not planning on eating, so I’m not worried about a true identification. But. Eh.
