I can understand your confusion. The terminology "dry rot" is misleading in
the sense that rot will not occur in wood without moisture. I don't know the
history behind the use of 'dry rot' but all it really means is rotted wood
that has dried out. There are a number of microorganisms that can initiate rot
in wood but not without the presence of moisture.

So while talking about rot and lime sulfer i noticed a
few people mentioned git rot. I ran a google search
for it and found that it said it treated dry rot.
What is the difference between dry rot and not dry rot
are they caused by different fungus'? Is there a wet
rot? If so how do you tell the difference between the
2.
