Bill, the fungus (Leucocoprinus birnbaumi) is quite harmless to the plants, 
and is a common inhabitant of flower pots in warm greenhouses, terrariums etc 
and is originally a tropical species now widespread around the world. When 
they open they are very pretty but short-lived. They feed on the bark chips 
and other detritus in the compost but will not affect the composition of the 
soil to any great extent. Nothing to worry about!
