Mold, Yellow

Patches of yellow mold are most commonly encountered in dark, damp locations, and grows in 5-foot square and larger patches. If disturbed, the yellow mold releases a cloud of spores in a 10-foot radius around itself. Creatures caught in the spore cloud take 11 (2d10) poison damage and must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or be poisoned for 1 minute. The creature takes an additional 5 (1d10) poison damage at the start of each of their turns and can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of their turns, ending the effect ton itself on a successful save.

Yellow mold is instantly destroyed by fire damage or sunlight.
