What a great surprise! Ive been making little clay mushrooms for fairy gardens, but this morning, I was joyful to find REAL mushrooms growing in my fairy garden pot.


Im not totally sure how this happened, but I have an idea. This pot of Babys Tears was started outside in regular potting soil. I brought it in before the frost so there was a chance for mushroom spores to get into the soil. The day before yesterday, I watered from the bottom in a dish, so there was adequate moisture. And yesterday, I was gone all day and the lights were off, so there was a decent amount of shade for the mushrooms to get started. If you think that mushrooms grow overnight, they do!
