So my elephant ear plant I have inside started growing these spores on the top of the soil. There's also these very small black specks on the stem and leaf and my plant is droopy and a little yellow. I haven't been doing anything different with it and it was doing so well! New growth and all. HOWEVER I did recently use some 3-in-one spray (with sulfur) to get rid of some little flies.
So I'm wondering what these gross spores are, why they are here, what to do, and if my plant is hurt forever :(

|Mushrooms growing on decaying organic matter. Nothing to worry about because its normal condition that stems from the environment.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

|The fungus is harmless, but you may have some other problems. Fungus gnats are often a sign of soil staying too wet and rotting roots. Please post a photo that shows the entire plant and its pot.

|Ok so I reported it yesterday because I panicked and didn't read the replies until now.
Also there were super tiny white bugs in the soil.
I don't think it liked being repotted
Thanks for all of your replies!! This is such a helpful forum
