Tag Archives: Stinkhorn


During our PDC course here in Malvik yesterday, we found an “exciting” and “amusing” fungus which is quite rare in this part of the world, Phallus impudicus (common stinkhorn, stanksopp) at the witch egg stage! :)
I have found this “organic” fungi several times before, but it’s 8 years since the last time. I’ve found it in 3 places in my garden, first around 1998 on an edible bed built up like a Hugel bed! I often had to explain to folk visiting the garden why there was a sickly smell hanging over the garden ;)
