Unit 6- Process 2: Growth of the Basidiospore into a Hyphae Forming Mycelium

This process occurs just after the germination of the basidiospore,who evolutes into a hyphae. A hyphae is a long, slender, usually branched filament part of a fungal mycelium. A Mycelium is a outcome of the growth of the spores, they have this thread-like look, that interlaces and forms the most abstract and random forms. This undergoes the process of Plasmogamy, when two Mycelia (Mycelium) of different matting types encounter.

As I mentioned before, the pictures above are the visual reference in which I will take further and apply to create most abstract of the landscapes. As you can see they already look real alien to us, something out of a science-fiction film. Is hard to believe how a so fascinating microscopic being inhabits with us, but we are not able to see it with a naked eye.
