WHAT ARE FUNGI?
Fungi can take many forms, from mushrooms to yeasts, molds and others. The fungi we use is a filamentous fungi, a type of fungi that creates branched microscopic filaments (hyphae). These filaments can grow into large macroscopic structures which is called mycelium. A fungal organism is usually divided into 2 parts: the mycelium and the fruiting body. If you think of mushrooms, the mushroom itself is the fruiting body, while the mycelium is a large fibrous structure that is found underground from where the fruiting body grows.
