Cars In Jars - The Silver Ranger

Nomadic Fungi Institute
Over the past three days the NFI Lab has been conducting tests on sprouting Nomadic Fungus spores. This Nomadic Fungus test sample is labeled NFSST-01.2015 but around the NFI Lab we are fondly calling him the Silver Ranger.

The spore enriched cocktail that the the Silver Ranger is immersed in has shifted in color from a yellow amber to pail ruby green. We have not noted any signs of growth on the surface of the vehicle as of yet but our hopes are high that the Silver Ranger will soon be hosting a plethora of Nomadic Fungus sprouts.

First Step In Making A Nomadic Fungus Cocktail

Cars In Jars
Going on the assumption that a key component to germinating healthy Nomadic Fungus spores is the incorporation of household waste products, the NFI Lab dispensed with sterilized beakers and replaced them with recycled peanut butter jars.

Into each jar a scale model automobile is placed and then filled with our specially prepared spore laden cocktail composed of a wide variety of household and industrial byproducts. (For public safety the exact ingredients and proportions of the spore cocktail are not being released at this time.) The lid is then screwed on tight.

The jars are placed on stainless steel oven racks we salvaged from a condemned barbecue restaurant. These racks are then placed inside the NFI incubator/toolshed. They will be monitored daily for the next four weeks.
