Has anyone ever seen these before. Found them in a pot with some succulents. I've never seen them before. They seem to have some roots too.

Agree, looks like bird nest fungi.

Could it be that you are over watering?

Oh goodness... thank you all so much.

They are so strange, I've never seen or heard of them before.

Should I get rid of them? Will they harm my other plants?

I haven't actually watered them at all recently but we did have A LOT of rain last week which might be the cause then.

If your plants look happy, I would not worry about the fungi.

The roots are mycelium, BTW, similar but not technically roots.

They don't hurt a thing.
Actually, they are helping break down the raw un-decomposted material in the soil. A good thing for your plant. 👍😀

The presence of fungi means the soil is not a sterile potting mix. There may be other issues with the potting mix such as its lacking adequate porosity and insect pests in there. Not looking for trouble here, but you should be aware. Keep the soil good and dry.
