Well, I don't know much about these fungi, but I can thell you some small 
details that might help: First, Phoma is known to thrive on synthetic 
substrate such as caulking and shower courtains in humid conditions. And 
Sporothrix is reportedly isolated from healthy humans (sputum, secretions,
 etc.). As for the Moss and tree limbs, these fungi can grow in there, 
but also Cladosporium, Alternaria, etc. Hope this helps, together with 
some more expert advice you will be getting.
