Now, as a scientist, I ask myself, what makes them appear in my yard or flower bed? Of course, most of us know that plants that stink to high hell do so to attract pollinators! For example, what kind of things are attracted to rotted meat? There is a post from Dr.
The band Lynyrd Skynyrd and its music provide examples of:
He is their garden columnist and provides wonderful information. That image looks a bit more like my image from last week. They simply grow as saprophytes, obtaining their nutrients by decaying dead plant material, such as wood mulch, buried wood debris or rotting dead tree roots. There are no chemical control measures. Fungicides available at nurseries will not eliminate this fungus.
However, to reduce the likelihood of their reappearance, you can try to limit their food supply. Hardwood bark mulch can be removed and replaced with pine needles, or try to dig up and get rid of buried wood or large dead tree roots.
For me, these mushrooms are an occasional nuisance, and certainly nothing to get excited about. If I were, say, hosting a party on the patio today, I would grab my shovel, remove the offender and throw it over in some remote corner of my yard. To get a bit more botanical, I will tell you these particular mushrooms I have shared are a member of the Clathraceae family, but stinkhorns in general can be of Clatheraceae or Phallaceae. On their website there is a great page with images folks have submitted.
I am sure if you think you have a stinkhorn, you will find a similar image on that album page. So check it out. Some of them are very beautiful and some are very naughty-looking phallic.
Well, another hour has passed of me working on this blog post when I was supposed to be working on my raised beds and planting seed! I hope that someone will get something useful or entertaining out of this post about the stinkhorn. One final note, on the Mississippi Gulf Coast or surrounding regions you might consider joining The Gulf States Mycological Society , if you have a good interest in all things shroomy!
Well, maybe not ALL things shroomy.

Another great resource is Dr. He typically speaks and leads a mushroom walk at The Crosby Arboretum in the late summer. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account. You are commenting using your Twitter account.
