Sclerotia: another word for magic truffle

The word sclerotia won’t be familiar for most of you. Actually sclerotia (singular: sclerotium) is nothing other than the truffle itself. The encyclopaedia says that sclerotia are a compact mass of hardened sclerotia fungus. Sclerotia are build to survive in extreme conditions. In some other fungal sclerotia remain until there is a favourable opportunity for growth.

In nature you will find many different sclerotia. Some sclerotia contain psilocybin, the active substance that make our magic truffles so special. So if you hear of sclerotia in the future you know that this is not about some kind of tropical disease, but just about our magic truffles.
