Watch: Lingzhi mushroom base in east China resembles a fairyland



On June 5, 2024, the Lingzhi mushroom base in Yunle Township, Jingde County, Xuancheng City of east China's Anhui Province, was shrouded in mist and light rain. The base appeared and disappeared in the clouds and fog, resembling a fairyland.

Jingde County is surrounded by mountains, featuring clear waters and lush greenery, with mist lingering year-round and a continuous supply of mountain spring water. The superior natural environment provides unique and favorable conditions for the growth and distinctive quality of Lingzhi mushrooms.

Lingzhi mushroom belongs to the genus Ganoderma and is a fungus species native to the dim and humid forests in China. It grows at the base and stumps of deciduous trees, extracting nutrition from them to survive. It is extremely rare to find wild Lingzhi because it requires a delicate balance of light, moisture, and temperature. Usually, only a few out of 10,000 trees will have Lingzhi growing on them. Lingzhi mushroom is highly regarded in traditional Chinese medicine. It is usually used to lower the risk of cancer and heart disease and boost the immune system.
