hello - Newbie here!

I had of this planted a few months back and it seems to be doing really well. I recently noticed some mushrooms growing around the base and the spots on the leaves. Can anyone tell me if this looks like a problem?

Its a symptom of too moisture in the roots. When excess water is taken up by the plant, it has nowhere to go, so it bursts the cells causing brown spots. Let the top inch dry well before watering again.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

Clusia is usually an epiphyte. It functions a lot like the strangler fig. I am not sure I have ever seen one actually planted. I grow one as an epiphytic plant in moss, hanging

I looked it up and it can be a shrub or hedge. Learn something new everyday LOL. Mine is a rosea and has long trailing adventitious roots

Thanks, it's outside and rainy season so I guess I just need to leave it be

Yes the rain has returned to Florida (finally, we were dry here). Now that I saw the photos of it growing as a hedge online I realized I have seen this all over the place and not realized what it is!
