pigments

--they need moist, warm places in which to grow. They thrive on moist foods, damp tree barks, lawns coated with dew, damp forest floors, and even wet bathroom tiles.
Hyphae
The branching, threadlike tubes that make up the bodies of multicellular fungi.
fruiting bodies
The reproductive structure of a fungus that contains many hyphae and produces spores.
budding
A form of asexual reproduction of yeast in which a new cell grows out of the body of a parent.
lichen
