  • optimal
  • Fungal growth is affected by the presence of optimal nutrients necessary for growth, by the presence of minerals, by temperature, by pH and by osmotic pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • however
  • In young cultures, the C. coronatus spores have a smooth appearance, however as they mature, the spores gradually become covered with short hair like projections called villi. (wikipedia.org)
  • Certain
  • Certain minerals are able to stimulate fungal growth, for C. coronatus these minerals are Magnesium and Zinc. (wikipedia.org)
