Stan’s Obligatory Blog

I have a Jade Plant in my office. I have a window with a southern exposure, and it’s generally pretty happy. I have to turn it every few months because it grows towards the window, but aside from that, it’s pretty low maintenance. But today I noticed that there are two little yellow mushrooms growing right by the base of the plant. They’re rather striking. I don’t know much about mycology, so I have no idea what kind of mushrooms they are. My first thought when I saw them is that maybe I’m watering the plant too much. But it seems happy. In any event, these mushrooms are the first I’ve ever seen that are quite that shade of bright yellow. So they’re interesting.

Of course, bein’ a geek and all, I did some searching with the Oracle (aka Google) and I found that they are likely Leucocoprinus birnbaumii, which they say is ‘possibly poisonous‘. Cool.
