Mushroom like “Spores?” In Soil

Zone Maryland | DASmith1 added on June 24, 2013 | Answered

I have tomato plants I have grown froom seed in containers on my deck. I have 3 containers. I put one bag of the same kind of organic soil in each container. Four of the 6 plants are doing beautifully. The remaining 2 are not. I just noticed that the soil for those 2 plants has little white mushroom like things growing in it. I bought 2 bags of the soil from 1 Home Depot and the 3rd bag from another Home Depot. What should I do?

It’s probably slime mold. Don’t water after 5pm. Water more deeply less often, and leave time for soil to dry off before nightfall. This article should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/fungus-lichen/what-is-slime-mold-slime.htm
