Plant experts apply here...

I like house plants.
Unlike the things I attempt to grow outdoors, they do not have to be weeded.
I am pretty good with them too. This however, hasn't always been the case. A few years ago every plant in my house up and died on me, for no reason I could ever figure out. For the most part though, I do well with them unlike some people who can't keep them alive, because they refuse to water them.
I have been know to have house plants so large that people were afraid the plant would eat them alive,
as seen below.

(It got so large I had to donate it to this place. )
People were actually afraid to sit in that chair!
Yes I know, its a lot of clocks... stay with me here people...
The point is that I have become pretty familiar with plants and how to take care of them.
Then I found this...



I keep this plant right next to my shower, I looked through the glass this morning to find this staring me in the face. I was almost afraid to finish showering. It looks like something from this movie.
Anyone got any ideas?
Where it came from... besides Mars?
What I should do with it?
... anyone....?

This happened in the carpet right by the bathroom of one of my apartments. In extreme basicness, the plant is being watered too much by the humid environment. Of course your plant could also be having other issues as well.

I'm not sure, but it looks kinda creepy.

PS - love the new look!

Hey! It's not that I refuse to water them, I just forget about them. I have a hard enough time remembering to take care of all the plants outside, let alone ones inside! It's a good thing I'm not a house plant person, then I might get stuff like that in my plants! That's really kind of icky. I bet it has to do with the humidity in the room.

It resembles fungus I see growing in the yard but not sure. If you find out I sure would like to know.

Its just common fungus that grows because of the spores in the air. Dont fret...just pull them out and throw. Or you could pull it out and put it in an envelope and mail it to someone (u dont like)as a bio-terror prank :P kidding don't get arrested!! :P

I have this same thing happening with the potted plants outside by my front door. I probably water them too often, so it stays damp. I"m convinced the spores were in the potting soil when I bought it. I get a fresh crop of the creepy looking mushrooms about once a week. Like a trainwreck: can't stop watching them.
