Dog Vomit Slime Mold


Unity Community Worker, Amanda Zook, e-mailed about a fascinating discovery growing on the mulch in the childrens' garden at Unity Center.  It was Fuligo septica, aka Dog vomit Fungi but it is not really a fungus. It appears in mulched areas after soaking rains. This bright yellow specimen is the fruiting stage. It will eventually lose its' color and harden until it releases numerous spores later in the season. No control efforts are recommended since this dog vomit slime mold is relatively harmless to humans or plants.


However, according to Amanda 100% fascinating to children at the Unity Center!!!!!
