mushrooms growing in my containers

CelbriseSeptember 28, 2012

occasionally their are mushrooms growing in my container gardens. they are growing because i used some mulch laying around thats old so im guessing the spores were on the chips.

i was wondering is it okay if i just leave the mushrooms intact or must i pull them out? i live in Hawaii so they tend to dry up but it does become a hassle going out everyday seeing mushrooms and plucking them out. they usually die within a day due to the heat.

I would not bother to remove them. They are the fruit of the fungus in the soil and will grow when conditions are right. Al
