While creating mycelia mats, it is possible to make mistakes that could have negative impacts on the forest ecosystem. For centuries, Chaga has been renowned for its medicinal properties and is a type of fungus that grows on birch trees in the boreal forests of the northern hemisphere. Beneath the soil surface, mycelial mats, consisting of networks of fungal threads or hyphae, are vital for the growth and survival of chaga. These mats absorb moisture and nutrients from the soil, facilitating their transport to the chaga fungus growing on the birch tree. Furthermore, they serve to anchor the chaga fungus to the tree, providing it with a stable platform for growth and reproduction. Additionally, the mycelial mats of the chaga fungus are crucial in breaking down dead plant material, decomposing organic matter in the soil, and returning nutrients to the soil. This creates a nutrient-rich environment that supports the growth of the birch tree and provides a habitat for the chaga fungus. Overall, mycelial mats play a critical role in the survival and growth of chaga, as well as in the functioning of the ecosystem in which it thrives. 
Mushrooms offer a glimmer of hope and a valuable gift from Mother Nature to humanity, delivering a diverse array of nutritional and medicinal advantages.
