Welcome to my weekly mushroom protocol. In my previous and also my first post titled: Mushroom Protocol 01 We went over 3 mushrooms.
Namely:

  • The Scleroderma citrinum or earthball
  • The Craterellus cornucopioides or horn of plenty
  • The lycoperdon or puffball



Can you guess the following mushroom?
