Abstract: Growth patterns and growth kinetics of the fungi Cephalosporium sacchari on agar surface have been investigated. The mycelium of fungi grows similar to non-living systems. The growth patterns have been developed on different culture media. The kinetic data obey the simple equation d = mt +c where m and c are slope and intercept respectively and t is the time. The growth was found to be light induced. Dependence of pH of media on morphology and growth of the microorganism has been studied. Two similar and dissimilar mycelia discs have been inoculated together at a fixed distance and the influence on patterns have been studied. The contact zone has been characterised by a lack of spores abbreviated as inhibition pattern. The suppressed sporulation at the contact zone is due to competition over nutrients.
