Dog Vomit Slime Mould

No, my dogs didn’t vomit although I thought they did the first time I saw this thing in my garden which appears overnight.  I got really worried about them and then I got really worried about my plants!

Dog vomit slime mould

So I scooped it as well as I could, bagged and binned it…twice.  And still it came back again.  So I decided to find out more about it just in case I was doing something wrong in my garden.

Typed “Bright yellow fungus” on Google and found lots of information about what I was looking for.  Turns out we’re safe! Phew!  Here’s a link to the eHow article on it.

  1. I’ve had something similar only it’s white. Pops up overnight but doesn’t seem to do any harm, and then it disappears. Weird!

      Thanks for sharing your experience…I’m glad someone else had a similar experience which proved harmless. Another patch in another area of my garden just popped up today!


  2. Nothing like a good bit of slime mold to keep the plants company! I seem to get more of it if I’m composting with coffee grounds, but harmless nonetheless.


    • Hi Shane, nice to see you here!

      I suspected that it was related to the coffee grounds too as I’ve never seen it before this. I’m so glad it’s harmless as I love the coffee grounds in my garden.
