    Are Mushrooms Bad?

    I have some large mushrooms growing in my bog. I've never had that happen before. Is that a bad sign?

    Occasionally I've had a couple pop up in one of my Nepenthes pots. I think I remember reading somewhere that it's not bad; but possibly even good as it helps a symbiotic relationship with some of the microorganisms in the soil mixture. I always pluck 'em out though, as I don't want them to spread everywhere. Of course, mine were never "large."

    Mushroom fungi are usually decomposers of organic matter. It is probably breaking down the peat in the bog.

    Some mushroom species can be very destructive diseases, like Armillaria Root Rot, but the species I have heard of that do such things usually attack trees.
    that makes no logic

    Are Mushrooms Bad?
    I've had some that were reeeeeeeeaaaally good. But that was back in the "good ol' days". lol They tasted pretty bad though...


    Ohhhhh...you meant growing... It means you have conditions ripe for supporting fungi.


    Look at this beaut! I thought this one was fascinating...

    Tasted bad? "Those" kind taste good! And they smell like a mixture of feet and old cheese. It's a good smell, though.

    I like those green glowing ones. They are cool. And of course Amanita Muscaria are very pretty (and cute!)
