Russian term or phrase:chainiy grib
Can anyone provide an official Latin name and a lay English name for the so-called "chainiy grib" popular in Russia, China and Japan - I'm translating a Russian book on folk medicine.
Explanation: A kind of selfmade fashion drink which in waves "attact" population. It is usually planted in wide glass bottle iwth poured water with weak tea and bit of sugar.
Eg, between the last modifications of propagation of this water plant one can see "Grib Lyubvi" (you must plant this fungus and sepqrate daughter layer and then give to other person if you need to be loved).
To the real medicine it has almost no relation (except for water and sugar:))!
