Description

They look like a series of white round growths that are found in clusters on wood chips. As they mature the colour changes to dark grey before going to a light grey form. They have black spores and sit on thin red stems.

Habitat

They are found in humid areas like reptile tanks, especially if they contain wood chippings. In nature, they are common on fallen tree trunks, especially beech.
