RE: Identify please

Looks like tiny new born mushrooms to me. Wait a couple of days and take another picture.?

RE: Identify please

Don't assume all fertilisers are the size of osmocote. They come in different granular dimensions. Prilled urea can be as tiny as one milimeter.

RE: Identify please

If fertilizer, the individual "balls" will be brittle.
If mushrooms, or a slime mold, they will be soft, perhaps squishy.

Neither is a problem.

RE: Identify please

They may not be brittle, because they are hygroscopic, and a prill can be quite gelatinous when pumped up with water. I've squished them like zits. LOL
