It can also grow on non-cellulose substances

While most molds grow on cellulose but it is also possible to develop on other materials like wood. This is possible if these materials are covered in organic dirt such as dead skin cells, grease and oil from food waste or insect droppings. The growth of mold can be rapid. Mold can germinate in only four to twelve hours. A significant infestation can be detected in just twenty-four hours to forty-eight hours. It also needs moisture to live and food sources to be able to digest.
