its easy to make these and other 'nuisance fungi' go away; stop using wood mulches; use (vastly superior) compost or shredded leaves instead.

Thanks to all who helped identify the unusual
("hideous") thing that grew in my pot of edibles.
Here it is:

Common name:  (octopus) stinkhorn fungus
Now that I know what it is, it's not so scary.

We have these in Minnesota, too.  I get scores of
them at a time in my garden.  They stink and attract
flies.  The only good news is that they wilt after
only a day.  I have only seen them bloom in areas
mulched with wood chips.

I, too, would like to hear more about these,
including any suggestions for making them go away.

Hoping to see many of you next week-

Corrie Zoll,
Minneapolis

Fellow Gardeners,

Does anyone recognize this (in my opinion) hideous
plant??
I found it in a large pot of edibles as I was
watering. The force of the water probably knocked it
off it's "base," so I first noticed the "blossom"
part
lying on the soil under the leaves of a bush bean.
At first, I thought it was a large, pink slug...
even
after touching it. Yuk.
The blossom part is 5 inches long and hollow inside.
The "pod" part, still in the soil, is white and
leathery. Also hollow inside.
This is in southern California. Perhaps it came in
with the potting soil?
I think it is probably carnivorous, as it gives off
an
offensive odor.
PLEASE tell me what it is so I can take it out of my
refrigerator and dispose of it.
Thank you,
Carola
