Bread Mould Experiment Observations and Conclusion

How can you explain Bread Mold Experiments?

Spores of the fungus are present in the air. 

These germinate when conditions are favorable. 

The spores germinate to form white thread-like structures called mycelium.

Fungi affect human beings by destroying food, fabrics, leather, and other goods made from raw materials. They cause the majority of known plant diseases and many diseases in animals. 

But they also have some beneficial uses.

They are used in the making of bread, wines, and beers. They are also used in making cheeses, organic acids, and vitamin preparations.
