Yellow Mushroom – Leucocoprinus birnbaumii

I think that’s what it’s called after searching about yellow mushroom on the Internet.


I was shocked to see those yellow heads in my plant pot after a hot and rainy day. I think this is what Malay proverb said about cendawan tumbuh selepas hujan – how fast mushroom sprouts after a rainy day. One day there are none, the next day one pops after another.

It’s probably poisonous so since mushroom grows by disseminating spores, I took them out from the pot and yet after a few days I saw a whole new bunch popped up in the same plant pot.

On my third attempt, I managed to evade their growth and hopefully I won’t get to see them again. I know they might be harmless for the plant, but still having something else sharing the soil of my precious flowering plant seems like a pest or weed to me..heh!
