Describe the process of budding in hydra

Budding in hydra:

Hydra is a freshwater organism that can be categorized into different species. It is a small cnidarian with a tube-like body that is composed of a head, a distal end, and a foot at the end. During budding in hydra, a small bud is developed from the parent hydra, through which a repeated mitotic division of the cell takes place. The nutrition that is required for the growth of the bud is provided by the parent hydra. The bud starts to develop small tentacles and mouth. Once fully grown, the bud separates from the parent hydra and becomes an independent organism.

The following diagram shows the budding in hydra:
