Sundews and mushrooms - Funguys


Sundews and Mushrooms

I was given a tray of Sundews by a dear friend which were placed in my mushroom grow space as close to the light source as possible. Little did I realize how much these plants enjoy catching their prey. Soon hundreds of fungus gnats was stuck to the Sundew’s leaves and gone from my fruiting mushrooms. I think these little plants and other carnivorous plants are a great addition to anyone’s mushroom grow room. They enjoy the high humidity, and what the mushrooms bring them – FOOD. Since the Sundews have been around I have had less need of sticky fly paper.
