|Mushrooms and fungus sometimes grow in potting soil, especially if it is kept moist. I'd unpot the plant and replant it in fresh new potting soil. When you have it out of the pot be sure to check the root system and cut off any soggy or mushy roots. The fungus could be growing from dead or dying roots as well as the decomposing material in the potting soil. Good luck with your plant.
