Says it's unknown.

Same part of the country too it looks like. I'm going by the brick, SE U.S. The style of your aunt's home and the house in the pic on the site I linked is roughly the same. It's a popular style and pigment of brick used in the SE during the 1950's - 70's.

Thanks everyone for the names and links you posted. I will take more pictures tomorrow. The fungus was found in SC under a home built in 1963. The home has a lot of trees, shrubs, flowers and other natural growth all around it. My Uncle enjoy working on his landscape. This thing was not something he planted since it is under the crawl space although it most likely developed from the habitat. I will email pics to Clemson University to see what they say.

Peace to all

Re: Mystery Plant growing under house. Can anyone identify?
My father found this growing under my Aunts house. This is a mystery plant to me. Does anyone know what it is. It is hard yet very light weight. It reminds me of some type of mushroom. It has no light or water under the house.

Thanks in advance

I have quite a few pictures of a Sunset reflection. The Sun had already went down and the Sun reflection was very noticeable. I also have other Beautiful ORANGE Mushrooms in the list of pictures along with Orbs around my dog and a couple of pictures of multicolored stars.

Amy, it was under the home and then transplanted into the flower container? Or did you place it there for scale? I'm wondering because fungus often grows from decaying wood. While there's often some of that in gardening container from mulching, it didn't regrow after being relocated, did it?

Please report back what you find. It might be a very rare specimen.

The pictures I posted were AFTER I pulled it from the ground beneath the house. The flower container was just something near by I stuck the "plant" in. This was growing with no light, water or anything. The ground must carry moisture but no water is able to puddle under the home.

Re: Mystery Plant growing under house. Can anyone identify?
Hello again everyone. I emailed a picture to a local University about the strange Fungus. The professor wrote back with this reply.

" I would think that this is a fungus, and what you have is the fruiting structure; it's making spores (or at least it was). I can't be sure about the identity, but it is likely to be the genus Ganoderma, a common fungus which makes these somewhat woody "antlers". It is indeed a wood-rotting fungus...which suggests that you might want to investigate decreasing the moisture in the crawl space, sure enough...especially if you keep seeing these things down there"

Re: Mystery Plant growing under house. Can anyone identify?
Ganoderma is the genus of fungi containing the species known as Reishi mushrooms. In the US, there are three medicinal species (I can't remember them without looking it up), including the famous Artist's Conk. Each species prefers certain types of trees, which is a key to identifying them.

It likely is growing on the root of a tree growing in or near your yard. If you list the trees growing nearby, we may be able to confirm that it is Ganoderma. If so, you've got a very, very valuable medicinal. Last time I bought it, I paid 10 bucks for a 1/4 oz. of recent dried fungus. Goooooood stuff.

EDIT: your profile, OP, says the state you are in. If this is still correct, it is likely G. zonatum, which is reported to have medicinal effects, but somewhat feebler than the three primary species used in contemporary alt med. It grows on the palmetto trees so common there, which are themselves medicinal. When a medicinal fungus (or parasitic plant) grows on a medicinal host, their chemistry, and thus, their effects, blend in a synergistic way. G. zonatum from a saw palmetto would be one of my first choices for prostate cancer, very early on. Anyway, just an FYI.

Incidentally, I spent 8 years in your state. I miss the low country Springtime.

Re: Mystery Plant growing under house. Can anyone identify?
It is a fungi/mushroom - which one would be hard to say by those images. Too much saturation and too busy of a back ground for me to tell.

Most universities/colleges have botany professors who will know or will know how to rapidly locate a sample in a book.

As for mushrooms growing in the yard, this is due to fungi spores in your soil... this often happens when the PH (acid) gets off kilter, or when there is deficiencies in the regular nutrients thus allowing the native plants to die back enough to support and promote fungi growth.

While there are any number of fungicides on the market, the best way to fix mushrooms growing in your yard is to get the soil tested and amend it with the right stuff to resent its ph and its other nutrients.

That's interesting that such a thing could be medicinal. Our own yards and nearby woods and fields probably have everything we need to keep us healthy all our lives.

In my herbal practice, most remedies grow in the world around us. In greener months, I will often take folks outside and have them collect the remedy and help them prepare it. Sometimes only a part of their formula is available like this, but usually they get it themselves after that. Not the best business model, I guess. After a while, they only seldom need my help.
