Are these plants we can put in the database? I just found out that I have Fuligo septica (dog vomit slime mold) and I had NO idea what it was.. had to do some serious googling to figure out *what* it was. Think it would help others who may do what I did & panic that their yard is being taken over with something really nasty & disgusting.

Mold and fungi are not plants and that's why we don't include them in the database.

Maybe we could have a forum for them? A thread for each kind?

But we are All Thing Plants and they are not plants. Shrug! (mold is actually a type of fungi)

Pictures could be posted in the ID Forum or Ask a Question forum for when we get the occasional question on these, members have fun trying to ID everything. Thumbs up

Thumbs up A Fun Guy microbadge for us Fungi lovers would be pretty cool; I'd buy it! Green Grin! Maybe someone can superimpose a face with a moustache onto a mushroom? Green Grin!

Well you know it wouldn't be politically correct for just Fun Guy badge. You would have to include a Fun Gal (fungal) badge.
