Ficus Benjamina

Zone UK | yvette45 added on October 30, 2015 | Answered

I treated my Ficus Benjamina with a fungicide to treat vine weevil infestation and about 4 months later large toadstools are appearing attached to the base of the trunk. How is best to eliminate these without damaging the tree?

The treatment of a fungicide and the infestation have nothing to do with toadstools growing around the plant.

The fungus or mushrooms will not harm the plant but may be difficult to eliminate.
