-Mycelium is the vegetative part of a fungus consisting of a mass of branching, thread-like hyphae. Fungal colonies composed of mycelium are found in and on soil and many other substrates

Mycelium extend the area in which a fungi can find nutrients. Fungi are stationary organisms; however, mycelium grow outwards to look for water and nutrients such as nitrogen, carbon, potassium and phosphorus, which the mycelium transports to the fruiting body so it can continue to produce biomass and grow.

❗️Mycelia make up a critical part of their ecosystems by aiding in the decomposition and regeneration process

-A Mycorrhiza is a mutual symbiotic association between a fungus and a plant. The term mycorrhiza refers to the role of the fungus in the plant's rhizosphere, its root system.

🍄🔌 The fungi receives sugars from plant roots (the sugars or exudates are created during photosynthesis and exuded through the plant roots). I’m exchange, it absorbs and sends soil nutrients and water back to the plant. When nutrients in the area are completed the fungi simply expands further into the soil for more.
