There is a lot of information on the internet about this fungus should one care to search. My question is; Is there, to the best of anyone's knowledge, a health issue connected with this fungus? The offical name of this fungus is "Sphaeroboulus stellatus". A number of studies are available via the net. The big issues are; 1) health ? 2) how do get this stuff off once it gets hard. There HAS to be a chemical that will remove the dried spores...? Pleas advise any further data.
