    I went out to my outdoor plants this morning to feed and noticed these lil mushrooms in the soil. I pulled them out and took a pic. What does this mean? Aren't mushrooms made of fungus? So I have fungus in my soil or what? This is the second time I found them, last time there were 3 at the edge of pot and this time there were 5 near the stalk. Any thoughts on this?

    Did you get your soil from outdoors?

    It means you have a healthy micro herd going in your soil. It's a good thing.

    Mycorrhizae are fungus. Not all fungus or bacteria are bad and the plants depend on them.

    Do a little Google on mycorrhizae and beneficial bacteria and educate yourself.

    Wet has it right and you must be doing ok. If your growing in soil you are going to need to do a little reading on such things, like going back to school, lol. Growing in a container is just like growing outside only on a small scale, things change a bit faster both for the good and bad.

    Thanks u guys. Through my reading I have found that the fungus those mushrooms grow from is healthy for the root system. It helps absorb nutes and water. I also learned I may have overwatered a lil for the mushrooms to form. So thanks again
