The biggest organism in the world is not a tree. It's a fungus.

Am I the only one who already knew about this?
User avatar #4 to #3 - teranin (07/09/2013) [-]
Even people that already know are likely to thumb this up, since it is a very interesting piece of information.

Just because they are genetically identical does not mean that they are the same organism. An entire forest is not a single organism. Therefore, the fact the forest is 80,000 years old and weighs 6,000 tons is irrelevant

All the trees are off shoots of a bigger plant. Like mushrooms are actually massive underground circular masses and the mushroom itself is just the flower.

At first I thought it said orgasm, I was like "Holy **** that's a huge ass tree orgy"

I'm kinda disappointed now

life lives there, but i don't think the entirety of the coral reef is alive.

How do they share a root system? I'm just imagining their roots all being connected, which wouldn't make sense, since the roots need ends for them to actually function. Or are they only connected via a few roots or what?
