Lichen looks like flaking paint.
Inorganic? No, it ain’t.

Do not try to watch it grow.
Each micron takes a day or so.

Nerdy 😉 Note

Dunno enough lichenology to say how slowly my lichen grows.  From the wide range of known lichen growth rates and my very casual observations, I could go with either “hour” or “day” as a crude monosyllabic estimate of long my lichen takes to grow a millionth of a meter wider.  Compared to watching lichens grow, watching grass grow would be like watching hockey.
