How to get rid of stinkhorn fungi?!?!

jnfreyOctober 8, 2006

I recently have moved into my first home with a wonderful landscape. however, I spend alot of time idetnifying what things are and how to care for them. So you could imagine my surprise when I saw what we thought looked like an octopus leg sprouting from an unused mulched area. All the flies were sucking this thing dry and it wasn't there a day or two before. Well, I found it, it's the stinkhorn. How do I get rid of it? I raked off the mulch and pulled up the black weed cloth( hey, im new to this game) and founf at least thirty "eggs" of this stuff with white stringy things growing throughout the soil. I plan to plant bulbs and shasta daisies here...will these be a problem???Thanks!!

PS any tips on first time bulb planter?

Not a problem for your plants. They'll come and go according to their own schedule, influenced by moisture and temperature.

You can ignore them or you can rake them out when you see them. But don't bother going to the extreme of pulling out the mulch and weed cloth.
