spores in my mulch - Knowledgebase Question

Question by cpyeatt

I was pulling weeds and a powder kept coming up so I brushed some mulch a side and there were little spores and when they break open a powder comes out. What should I do? Is there a spray or do I need to dig it all out and start over?

Those spores are part of nature and are from a decomposer fungus that is turning the mulch and/or other organic matter back into soil. They are not plant disease fungi and are no cause for concern.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
