  • English Ivy fungus?

    Can anyone identify this weird fungus looking thing that is growing on my english Ivy. I just recently bought the ivy, they were potted in the store for me, and I have been watering as instructed. Any help is appreciated.

    Photos are attached

    Hi Mbarnes,

    It looks like prop roots have sprouted on the stem that are used to attach to trees and structures.* They are sometimes called suckers or root-like structures. See the lower left picture here with the yellow arrows.* That's why it's best not to plant this in the garden.
