Why do the pieces of an old stump glow in the dark?

== == A great question. The mycellium of common mushrooms are

bioluminescent and glow in the dark. These have been used for

centuries. Settlers in the US used to pack them into glass jars and

read books by the light. They called it foxfire. Although most

people don't want to go into the woods at night, there are

wonderful things to discover when you turn off the flashlight!
