Mushrooms growing out of the bottom of a potted Fern

Pat and Amanda have some interesting plants in the window of the Tech Office. They've been fighting ants, who seem to like living in potted plants. These mushrooms growing out of  Amanda's Fern suggest moisture and a significant organic component to the soil. I know nothing else about it....only that I like it.

I'm battling ants in some of my potted agaves brought in for the winter. Aggghh!

The mushrooms are cool, but would seem to indicate rot. But if the plant's happy, I guess it's all good.

Cool mushrooms!

hmm, I am not sure that mushrooms mean rot in any bad way... Mushrooms are the fruit of microscopic cells that actually break down nutrients in the soil and make them more available to the plants.
Great photo... cute mushrooms...
