This stinky visitor is in one of the plummie pots. It is called a stinkhorn fungus. Not sure where to post it but thought it kinda cool.

I have never seen that fungus before. Does it damage the Plumeria ? Crying I have just one Plumeria and have never seen any thing like this.

They really are cool looking, Robert. But boy! Do they smell like something died or what? Rolling my eyes.

I'd snatch the remains of those puppies outa there with a ziploc bag or you're going to have lots more coming along in the spring. And I am downwind of you. Please!?

How 'bout Poland putting it on their stamp, too!

A few years ago I had to have a pine tree taken out. That must have been what was out there. I had pictures but would not know where to look for them. But stink...they kept growing for over a year and wow the smell was horrible. I had no idea what it was.
