I have a nasty mushroom that grows in my flower beds they call it the stinkhorn. It looks like a penis! It definitely stinks too. I can smell them way before they pop up and they seem to just grow overnight. They’re so nasty, i’m hoping you have some kind of spray I can use to make them disintegrate without having to touch them. What I found is that where one is growing, underneath it will be little golf ball sized pods that will grow out in another day or two. Sometimes I find 5-10 of these in a group, its so disgusting. Anything I can use on them? They collect hundreds of gnats too, so nasty.
This is the Phallus Fungus, also known as the Stinkhorn. They tend to grow around wood chips and the roots of trees when enough moisture is present. And you’re right, if you dig up the ground underneath one, you’ll find pods developing that usually take a few days to pop up.
We actually sell an aerosol you can spray them with that will both kill the bugs on them and make the mushroom disintegrate overnight. Give it a good soaking, about 15-20 seconds per mushroom, and the next day it will be 90% gone. FS MP AEROSOL comes with a straw you can use to spray into the hole up top. Lots of bugs will go inside it where they reproduce so be sure to spray the outside of it but in the hole too.
