What is growing in my mulch?
*These are airborne and do not come with the mulch. These are natural fungi that may grow in the perfect medium of mulch.
Mushrooms – These can vary in size and color but are non-edible and can be ignored or removed.
Slime Molds – Commonly known as “dog vomit” are brightly colored, yellow, or orange, and can be anywhere from a few inches to a foot across. These are normally temporary and can be left in place to decompose or can be removed and used in compost or discarded.
How can I deal with Spring Showers & Color-Enriched Mulch
The Coloring Process
To understand how colored mulch may experience product “washing” on occasion it is necessary to have a general understanding of how the color-enriching process works. The colorant is dispersed in a water-based solution in the production process. Water is the carrier that enables the colorant to coat the wood fiber surface. While water is of great value to help evenly coat the wood fiber with rich color, it also acts as a carrier between the wood and colorant particles until fully dried. When the mulch is completely dry the colorant particles bond to the wood and cannot be broken just by adding additional water, such as rain or a sprinkler system.
The bond needs time to form between the colorant particle and the wood fiber. This is referred to as critical drying time.
