Hawthorn and Araldite fungus

Post  Tony on Sat Jan 01, 2011 5:40 pm

This is a new one on me, Steve and Matt came over for the traditional Holidays walk and pub lunch... on visiting my garden prior to the walk the guys checked out the trees... I noticed this little fungus growing on the cascade Hawthorn (yes Fiona THAT one) it has grown in freezing weather and it looks like a piece of Bark has been stuck back on with Glue and it has 'seeped' out the sides, it is soft but firm to the touch, the bark is NOT loose... ideas anyone?

Hello Tomy. This looks more like an Algae than a fungus. Excessive wet conditions are a cause. Most Fungi don't like the cold anyway.

Tomy here: You know I am a fun guy to be with Will... it sure has been wet... in fact my garden should really be renamed life aquatic.

Sorry ToNy I just tried to google it but have found nothing to match it. Im sure it is Algae, but it might be worth a fungicide treatment just in case

I assume we're talking about the white globs (for lack of a better word). That's unlike any algal growth I have seen. Algae, being plants, generally have chlorophyll and are green or "ish".

Any chance of a better photo? That was a phone camera, I'd guess.

(I think I might shoot that cat!)

Hi Jim, its the good camera... just poor lighting... not much more to see than shown here.

Will the 'Blob' is NOT white... its opaque with a slight white tinge.. the photo 'flash' makes it look white

The 'Blob' really looks like it has squeezed out, on first inspection I though it a larvae, but it is a LOT bigger than a fly maggot... really got me flummoxed Suspect

What happens when you scrape it off or squish it? Is it juicy? Dry? Crumbly? Spongy?

Is there any internal structure if you cut one of those globs in half?

tratando fungos

Post  Humberto Silva Bonsai on Sat Jan 08, 2011 3:36 am

On the fungi in their cascading I advise you to wash the stones with a solution sulfocaustica, or better known as jin syrup (and a mixture of water, lime and sulfur).
Hope that helps.

Myxarium Nucleatum

Post  pmjos on Tue Mar 01, 2011 9:57 am

Dear Tony

I think that you will find that this is what is known as a jelly fungus Myxarium Nucleatum from the Hyaloraiceae family. The fungus lives on dead wood and the white (yellow sometimes) jelly is the fruiting body.
