Blog41 : Turkey Tail Polypore is commonly found throughout healthy hardwood forests in our region. It is also beautifully called the Cloud mushroom by the Japanese. If you flip over a healthy Turkey tail bracket it is stark white and looks like a white cloud. This was a thoughful name for identification purposes as it is a key identification feature. A very beautiful mushroom bracket that comes in many colours. I have collected samples that are lined in greens, blues, purples, burgundy, browns, and greys Turkey tail Polypore has a stunning combination of rich dark and light colours in a linear pattern.
