[VIDEO] “Black Mold” refers to stachybotrys chartarum (Stachy). Stachy is somewhat common in very warm, very humid environments – much less common where it is cooler and/or dryer. Hundreds of different molds (and mildews) are “black.” It is impossible to identify molds by “looking at them.” It takes a laboratory to determine the specific species.
