One fun & low-tech way to interact with fungal mycelia is to grow them in counter-top containers.

The source material can come in the form of stem butts from mushrooms you prepare for cooking, or can be purchased as grain spawn or sawdust spawn from a mycological supply business or hobbyist. Works best with Pleurotus species.

I add my used coffee grounds & tea leaves to the container each day & sprinkle in some grain spawn or shredded stem butts. Simple as that.
