    I noticed these in my potted philodendron this morning and have no idea what they could be. Some help would be greatly appreciated!

    I thought so, too. But when you poke at one of them a yellow liquid comes out.

    Oh, that does sound different. Maybe a slime mold?

    Doesn’t seem like it, this morning I checked again and they’re turning gray-ish now. I’ll attach a photo

    Agree with Eric - it appears to be a slime mold (myxomycete).
