RE: Ganoderma (灵芝)
Is this a mushroom or fungi? By it's color it seems like it would be easy to find on the forest floor. Does this herb have any psychological effects as I noticed it calms the spirits.

RE: Ganoderma (灵芝)
Ganoderma is a genus of polypore mushrooms which grow on wood and include about 80 species, many from tropical regions.Because of their extensive use in traditional Asian medicines, and their potential in bioremediation, they are a very important genus economically. Ganoderma can be differentiated from other polypores because they have a double walled basidiospore.

Hello,
Ganoderma lucidum, and its close relative Ganoderma tsugae, grow in the northern Eastern Hemlock forests. These two species of bracket fungus have a worldwide distribution in both tropical and temperate geographical regions, including North and South America, Africa, Europe, and Asia, growing as a parasite or saprotroph on a wide variety of trees.Similar species of Ganoderma have been found growing in the Amazon and you can find lots of information about Ganoderma on wikipedia..
