It is a type of Dog Vomit Fungus. It comes in different colors, usually a yellow but others as well.I've never seen anything like this before. When first spotted a few hours ago most of the white stuff was a vibrant blue.
I'm thinking this is some sort of fungus or mold.
It is nothing to be concerned about. However, calling it a fungus is a little misleading. For decades it was considered a fungus but soil scientists now call it a slime mold. It will soon go away. It is caused by a lot of water and is spread by the wind. It usually feeds on large particles of dead materials and yes, grass clippings.No fertilizer but a bunch of grass clippings. It's been very wet this week too.
I've been holding off on the cornmeal because of so much rain this week.
Is this something to be concerned with or is it just a sign of live soil? I'll check the plants that are affected but as of yesterday's post, they seemed ok.
If it is still raining a lot more grass clippings will only compact and restrict oxygen. The slime mold does nothing to plants, it feeds on and breaks down organic matter in the soil.Ok. Plants looking ok still. Should I avoid adding more grass for the time being?
