Welcome to Word of the Week! Stay tuned for a new word each Wednesday to amp up your nature vocabulary!

Hyphae are the building blocks, and foundation of the mycelial network. When spores of fungi germinate they grow thin threads of cells called hyphae. The individual hypha can branch out and grow in multiple directions, and together they form the mycelium!
