There are 4 stages to dry rot:
- 1 – Dry rot starts its life as a microscopic spore. Sometimes if there is enough spores it can resemble a find orange dust.
- 2 – Should moisture reach these spores, it will grow fine white strands, called ‘hyphae’.
- 3 – When the hyphae begin to germinate, they will form a large mass called ‘mycelium’.
- 4 – Fruiting body is when the mass pumps new spores into the air.
