    Hi All

    I have mushrooms popping up on rocks that I don't want them to grow on.

    What's the best way of getting them off or killed.

    Thanks

    Take a scalpel / stanley blade and cut a piece of the rock off under the foot. If you leave any part of the foot a new one will just pop up.

    Ive used a flat screw driver to dig and scrape a piece of rock under the foot. This way you can still save the mushroom and share with other reefers

    I see you are in Cape Town, so pm me and I can help you remove some if you keen to share - can you post a pic

    i throw shrooms and xenia away on a regular basis. if the rock gets too crowded, take it out clean it with sharp object and replace.
