I successfully transplanted these phallus impudicus (“impudent phallus,” aka the common stinkhorn) from one end of town to another in my diabolical plan to expand the range of this deLIGHTful species.
After depositing the cautious spoor two years ago, I thought I had failed as there were no results last year. But this year we have some robust specimens right where I put them. They are edible but only palatable in their “witch eggs” phase shown in pic 4; they have the whiff of carrion to attract flies as pollinators. Likes: wood chips. I am the guerrilla gardener Johnny Appleseed of the story, but you may call me: Johnny Dickweed
