    Hello,
    I am a visual artist on Vancouver Island and I am hoping to gather some information on harvesting and growing Slime Mold. My hopes are to construct a sort of containment vessel to house the slime mold, in a somewhat controlled & monitored environment.
    If any one has any advice on locating and extracting slime mold, or thoughts on the creation of a new home for it, I would be much obliged.
    Thank you,

    Contact Brett Couch and he should be able to put you in touch with the people who culture it for their protistology labs. Do note that it is nearing end of term, so some patience may be required while waiting for a response.
