“美丽”可能不是大多数人用来描述霉菌的第一个词,但是对于俄罗斯的一个在线社区来说,通常与死亡和腐烂有关的真菌确实是一种美丽的事物,他们有照片来证明这一点。

“妈妈,我已经长大了”是一个越来越多的模具爱好者的社区,他们喜欢上传自己的模具照片和评论其他成员上传的。这个公共团体创建于2015年,在受欢迎的俄罗斯社交网络vkontakte上,已经成长为超过50000名成员,其中许多成员不断张贴他们在自己家中成长的霉菌培养的有趣照片。如果你能摆脱厌恶,真正欣赏它背后的美,其中一些其实很有趣。
“妈妈,我已经长出了霉菌”,这是另一个不寻常的Vkontakte组织“丑陋的室内植物”的评论中的一个想法,很明显,它的特点是用户上传了丑陋的室内植物的照片。医学生谢尔盖·梅兹利亚科夫(Sergey Merzlyakov)在一张完全覆盖着蓝色霉菌的面盆的照片上发表了评论,他张贴了自己发霉的黄瓜,炫耀着一个专门拍摄霉菌照片的小组的想法。分析师尼基塔·彼得罗夫(NikitaPetrov)回复说,他创建了一个新的团队,正是为了这个目的,而‘妈妈,我已经成长了模具’社区诞生了。

梅兹利亚科夫最近告诉俄罗斯新闻网站tjournal,他回忆起曾问彼得罗夫,他是否认为他们的新团队会有其他成员,尼基塔回答说:“我不这么认为,我只是无聊而已。”如今,这两位创始人已不再参与霉菌的生长,但没关系。不管怎么说,他们从其他50000名成员那里得到了太多的材料。

‘Beautiful’ is probably not the first word most people would use to describe mold, but to an online community in Russia, the fungi commonly associated with death and decay truly is a thing of beauty, and they have the photos to prove it.

‘Mom, I Have Grown Mold’ is a growing community of mold enthusiasts who love uploading their own photos of mold and commenting on those uploaded by other members. The public group was created back in 2015 on popular Russian social network VKontakte, and has grown to over 50,000 members, many of which constantly post intriguing photos of mold cultured they grow in their own homes. Some of them are actually quite intriguing, if you can get past your disgust and really appreciate the beauty behind it.

‘Mom, I Have Grown Mold‘ started out as an idea in the comments of another unusual VKontakte group called ‘Ugly Indoor Plants’, which, obviously, features user-uploaded photos of ugly indoor plants. Medical student Sergey Merzlyakov commented on a photo of a pasta pan completely covered with blueish mold, posting his own moldy cucumbers, flaunting the idea of a group dedicated to photos of mold. Analyst Nikita Petrov replied with the link to a new group he had just created for that exact purpose, and the ‘Mom, I Have Grown Mold’ community was born.

Merzlyakov recently told Russian news site TJournal that he recalls asking Petrov if he thought their new group would get any other members, to which Nikita replied “I don’t think so, I was just bored”. Nowadays, the two founders are no longer involved in growing mold, but it’s ok. They get too much material from the other 50,000 members of the group anyway.

“It is necessary to cross this line, where disgust ends and admiration begins,” the two founders said. “Perhaps the community helps members. Nature is beautiful, but you don’t have to hurry to discover it, you need to sit quietly, look, examine.”
