Leucocoprinus birnbaumii, a yellow mushroom sprouting in flowerpots

Leucocoprinus birnbaumii (Flowerpot Parasol, Plantpot Dapperling, Yellow Pleated Parasol, Yellow Houseplant Mushroom, Lemon-yellow Lepiota)

We were absolutely fascinated and delighted when we first saw the Flowerpot Parasol in August 2013.

This pale yellowish and fleshy mushroom was sharing space with Dracaena marginata in our flower pot

We assumed that the potted soil must have been overly wet and conducive for its emergence and healthy growth.
