Is this normal?
Seems like there’s mushrooms growing in my aloe Vera pot. Should I change the soil?
It's a mushroom. (: They are natural, but it might be a sign that your soil is staying a little moist.
@sarahsalith thanks! I usually wait until it’s very dry before watering it, but maybe I was too generous last time!
You could change the soil but the mushroom is harmless unless eaten. Pluck the mushroom out by the stem. It is an indication that the soil is overly moist. I would not take the chance of damaging the aloe.
@Ju_lie_v eh, it's a sign of healthy soil. Take it as a compliment and then take it out. 😁
