Answer: Actually, apart from being unsightly, the growth is not harmful and does not require control. It is one of the natural methods of breaking down the mulch to help feed the soil over time. However, the best control would be to avoid wetting it and keep the mulch surface "fluffed up" so that it dries quickly. If you see it beginning, remove it immediately before it has time to develop the spores.
