Answer: Welcome to the wonderful world of slime molds! Slime molds are frequently observed when they form large colonies on mulch around trees or shrubs. They may initially appear as a slimy mound or mass, come in a variety of colors, and are often unsightly. Although slime molds are not plant parasites, they may injure plants by covering and shading them.

Slime molds will disappear if left alone, but their unsightly appearance may necessitate more rapid removal. On mulch, they can be raked or turned under and on turf they can be mowed. They can also be broken up or washed away with a forceful spray from a garden hose.
