  Titanum Leaf Cuttings and yellow fungus
From: GeoffAroid at aol.com on 2002.07.02 at 17:02:25(9059)
Bill, the fungus (Leucocoprinus birnbaumi) is quite harmless to the plants,
and is a common inhabitant of flower pots in warm greenhouses, terrariums etc
and is originally a tropical species now widespread around the world. When
they open they are very pretty but short-lived. They feed on the bark chips
and other detritus in the compost but will not affect the composition of the
soil to any great extent. Nothing to worry about!

Ah, this is knowledge we have here.

Can I add a creature in my greenhouse? It is a slime mould that puts up
truss-like brown "fruiting bodies" that give of spores in large brown dusty
clouds. Do you know that thing?

One of my earliest horticultural triumphs, and source of great entertaining
amazement, was alongside the first orchid I ever flowered, a Paphiopedilum
hainanense (labeled as appletonium) in a "globe" terrarium at home when I
was 11 - an extremely large bright sulfur-yellow Amanita-Death Angel-type
mushroom. Didn't see any others after that, and the orchid lived many more
years.

The spore bearing organs are cylindric but crowded at the top of a stalk as
a truss. Well, that's how we use the word truss here, like as in a truss of
bananas.
