  1. So many people get upset when they find this in their mulch and they try to make it go away by spraying it with a hose, which is hilarious because that just makes the spores spread, lol, as this video shows....

''Fuligo septica'' is a species of plasmodial slime mold, and a member of the Myxomycetes class. It is commonly known as the dog vomit slime mold or scrambled egg slime because of its peculiar yellowish, bile-colored appearance. A common species with a worldwide distribution, it is often found on bark mulch in urban areas after heavy rain or excessive watering. Their spores are produced on or in aerial sporangia and are spread by wind.
