Thank you for taking the time to tell me about puffballs. It is reassuring to know that the spores are not harmful.
Yesterday I was watering. There were three mushrooms that had blackened. As I sprayed, the water from the hose struck one of them. It seemed to explode and a large plume of purplish dust was emitted into the air. Yep, I sprayed the others and the same thing happened. What kind of mushrooms exhibit this behavior, and is the aerated dust harmful?
