    Hi, this is my first post. Please let me know if I am breaking any rules or procedure. I just want to know what this mushroom is, and if maybe its harmful to me or my plants?

    Welcome to the forum Beebutzz4ever, and thank you for posting,

    Your mushroom is sometimes called the houseplant mushroom - Leucocoprinus birnbaumii.
    Lovely little thing - It will not harm your plants. It will not harm you as long as you don't eat it: I gather that it is not edible for humans as it has some level of toxicity.

    With your permission, I would like to merge this thread, with our pinned thread on this topic: Let me know if that is OK with you?
