Mushrooms Abound-Join In


It's interesting to see mushrooms appear in the garden in all the unusual places at various times of the year. Not to mention their shapes and colors as well! And the camera bug that I am, you know I have been and will be taking pictures of them as I see them for my picture collection of mushrooms!

Here are a few recent pictures of mushrooms that have appeared in some of my potted plants.


Interesting array of many mushrooms in one container


A lonely little mushroom appeared in my cacti/succulent dish.


A pretty color of yellow. These little guys remind me of mini umbrellas in mai-tai drinks

Here are some of my favorites that have appeared in my garden from years past.


This one is my favorite!

More interesting ones!



These guys are cool.

Join in and show mushrooms that grow/have grown in your garden!

shrooms need it very damp to grow and my climate here in the summer is far from damp...in fact I cant water enough to keep my front yard green! It is just to hot here.

Love the pics though!

your favorite is MINE also, since it reminds me of a fluffy and rich cheese cake

Some of yours look familiar, I have them as well, but they are usually short lived.

Great pics! TFS! Last week I watered my devil's ivy and the next morning there were mushrooms in the pot. I've never had that happen before. What I can't figure out is where the spores came from. That plant has been in the same spot for five years or more, it's climbing across the room. I haven't changed the soil or added to it in years. I haven't placed any new plants near it in years. I haven't even brought any new plants in the house since last fall. Haven't changed my watering habits or fertilizer or watering can. I use tap water. I simply can't imagine how the spores got in that pot.

Thanks mr, Diane & PUD. PUD, sorry you don't see mushrooms your way.

GT, funny. Yep, and there is one slice just waiting for you in my pic. Hope you can catch a pic or two the next time you see them and share with us.

Bernie, thanks. I wouldn't worry as to the whys you have seen mushrooms in your potted plants. Actually they are harmless except if ingested by pets or children.

Ya know, when I initially saw mushrooms sometime back in my garden and until today, I thought oh no, that is not a good thing. Did a little research today and discovered a whole new world in mushrooms, so cool. I found some interesting sites as well as pictures on wild mushrooms. Actually they are good for your soil would you believe but fatal for your pets and children if ingested (depending on which kind).

I also came across this poem today that I love and would like to share with you.

"The mushroom is the elf of plants.
At evening it is not,
At morning in a truffled hut
It stops upon a spot." - Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)

Next time you see a toadstool in your garden, take a pic and share with us!

I wasn't a bit worry about it just dumbfounded as to how it got there. They looked kind of neat actually and I'm hoping they'll come back.

I had a mushroom pop up in my garden last week, but it only lived a few days. I've never seen one in a potted plant before, WOW!!
