The influence of substratum water potential on the growth of Serpula lacrimans and Phallus impudicus was investigated. Two methods of adjusting the water potential of the substratum were used; both gave qualitatively similar results. Linear growth rate decreased with substratum water potential. The turgor potential at the mycelial front and linear growth rate were positively correlated in both species on both media. An experiment concerned with growth from a medium of high water potential to one of lower water potential and vice versa produced results consistent with those obtained for growth on a single medium.
