Hi Richard, that's exactly it ! The mold will allow us to form the form the frame. Other bio-hackerspaces have already conducted such experimentations and have shared their results. We would like to try using wood fiber used for MDF, or use other natural fiber. We've ordered the mycelium online ... We're starting growing next monday !

I've never heard of this so just wondering, would there be a mold filled with some medium and the spores introduced to create the mycelium network?
