    Fungal fruiting body

    A photo of the fruiting bodies of a fungus that's in quite few of my pots. The 'mushrooms' appear around this time annually.
    Any ideas? Is it beneficial?

    Definitely not Psilocybe, Amanita, or Panaeolus, so I don't see any benefits.

    That would be no benefits that we are aware of at this time? It's certainly not detrimental anyway. Thanks for the reply.

    Mushrooms are opportunistic. They're exploiting a resource, which is decaying organic material. They're more a symptom of your media breaking down than a problem or benefit in and of themselves.

    That media has been breaking down since I potted it up 25 years ago

    Well if peat broke down quickly we wouldn't have any peat bogs to exploit would we?

    We'd just have to exploit them more quickly!
