Technically speaking this is not fungus but mushrooms.

comment Can I plant rhubarb roots in mid July, in Michigan?
Once they are established rhubarb is a vigorous plant. Even cropping it three times a year will only just keep it within a 3' x 3' (1 meter sq area)

comment What is this small white spathed plant in southeast Pennsylvania woodland?
is there even the remotest chance that this is a tropical that someone planted there? The flowers of an aroid are all similar but this is sooo close

comment Tropical Growth Room for Vanilla Planfolia
@jmusser with many plants this would be true and an inexpensive add on. The vanilla orchid is an epiphyte and does not require a growing medium per se, orchid bark or cork are just fine. It depends on the budget tropical has whether you want to add more accessories.
