Fungal infection!

Welcome to Our World Tuesday! This week I’m posting pictures from the garden of my friend Alpana. Work has begun on the winter planting so the garden was in a state where it wasn’t its best. But the trees and the shrubs had their own stories to share…

The Indian bay leaf tree/Cinnamomum tamala had this large clump of fungi growing on its branches. But a branch was in the way blocking part of the view. Alpana’s husband got their help to tie a rope that particular branch so that I could get a better shot.What a special treatment that was!!

Coffee berries are ripening…

…and the resident garden spider in his world wide web is lord and master of what he surveys!

Inspiration from the garden. Inside the house is this framed picture done by Alpana’s talented son, Anish. I was awed by the details, particularly the insect-eaten leaf.

    Hi Kanak, those are lovely display of nice patterns. I am trying to look at the details though not very clear, but are they not the Ganoderma mushrooms they put in coffee and other tea as medicinal or health mushrooms?

    So many interesting things in this post! The poor tree might die of the infection. The painting is very pretty.

    Hi Kanak, Great pictures. I’ve never seen so many fungi on a single tree. The picture by Anish is very beautiful indeed. Thanks for leading me to his very interesting blog.

    We were given a coffee bean tree but if did not survive our very dry conditions. Love that great spider and the fungus on the tree. I wonder why the tree has such a large infestation? Let me know it you find out.

    Great sights.

    Love the fungi capture (that spider looks HUGE)!

  10. The amount of fungi growing on the tree is impressive, we have similar plate-like fungi growing on trees here but I have never seen it in such profusion. The coffee beans are pretty. I do not like spiders, and nearly had a fit day befor yesterday when I shook out a blanket and found a huge one similar to the one in your photo nestling in it, I turfed him out in the back garden where he belongs pronto. The painting is superb.

    Wow – those fungi are amazing! Do they damage the tree or can they live together in harmony?
