Christmas tree-topper aftermath

In Christmas tree 2021, I showed the use of a Buddha’s-hand fruit as a tree topper for our Christmas tree:

Buddhas-hand-2

The tree topper is a Buddha’s hand fruit from the New Leaf grocery store.

Buddhas-hand-1

Here is the tree topper from the other side.

When we started undecorating the tree, we found that the fruit had grown mold in an interesting pattern:

Buddhas-hand-2

The parts exposed to light remained orange, but the parts nestled into the tree grew a green mold (Penicillium?) surrounded by a white mold.

The borders between the moldy and unmoldy parts are particularly striking.
