Hello..need some advice, I am growing indoors and just transplanted some plants to my flower box a couple weeks ago. Recently just noticed some mushroom type fungi growing in my soil. Is this harmful to my plants? If so, How do I get rid of this fungi problem?? Is there a fungicide to use that will not harm my plants??

Generally, the presence of mushrooms is beneficial to other plants.

How wet is the soil?

Let it dry out a little and the "problem" will probably go away.

Purchased soil often produces mushrooms when kept wet.

Aren't Mushrooms and other fungis semi-good to have in the soil? I thought it ment it was heathly or something...

Or maybe not...

Go to a Garden place and ask to fungi-killers. Or use a 9 iron...lol.
