Particle Root system.

I am trying to make a root system with a particle generatos. Basically I am trying to simulate this:

It is Mushroom Mycelium. I am using a particle generator and have gotten pretty similar but it doesn’t have that beautifully veined effect that the real thing has. Is there a way to connect strands together in that manner?, i’d like to eventualyl add some type of gravity so that they spread themselves out of the ground. I suppose that’s a softbody thing I’ll look into. Anyway look forward to sharing my reults.


Here’s another picture that loks pretty freaky. Extreme Close-up of the mushroom primordia.
