Mycelium is the vegetative body for fungi that produce mushrooms and, in some cases, species of fungi that never produce a mushroom. When compared to a plant, mycelium is the root system and the mushroom is the flower. Mycelium consists of the growing 'stem' cells of the fungus.

Mycelium is the vegetative part of a fungus or fungus-like bacterial colony, consisting of a mass of branching, thread-like hyphae. The mass of hyphae is sometimes called shiro, especially within the fairy ring fungi. Fungal colonies composed of mycelium are found in and on soil and many other substrates.

Is mycelium harmful to humans?

Fungi are ubiquitous microorganisms that can be found in all parts of the world. When airborne, fungi take the form of spores, mycelia and hyphael fragments.
