Today I received a reply to the discussion thread I posted on the UBC Gardens website suggesting that we order some Physarum Polycephalum off the Carolina Biological website. We did just that and learned that our order would likely arrive in a dormant state and we would have to revive it before setting in the maze. Mom also asked a very insightful question: How does it know to move around the walls of the maze and not just move over them? Do they put a repellent on it or something?
