Came across these as I was digging in my garden today. They are obviously stinkhorn eggs, but I’m not certain what species. I would guess they are Lysurus mokusin. I’m hoping that I did not find all the eggs and I’ll get to see a mature one in the next few days.
but if I find another egg I’ll try what Darvin suggests. I thought about trying it with the first one I found, but they all had some sort of cut from when I dug them up and I was worried that would interfere with their normal growth.
Place the egg in a coffee cup lined with paper towels. Keep it moist and the stinkhorn will sprout and show its true colors!
I have done this; it works.
