Help! Bromeliad Is Growing Mushrooms

Ask The Expert: We have a bermilliad in our office.  Overnight it started growing mushrooms and we see baby ones coming up as well.  It also has gnats.  How do we get rid of both without killing the plant? -Sonja

Flower Shop Network Plant Expert Reply: Sonja,
If you are having a gnat and fungus problem, your soil is too wet. You need to aerate the soil and make sure the container is letting excess water drain away from the Bromeliad houseplant. You can also rake the soil with a spoon to aerate the soil. Make sure not to go the other way and let the bromeliad get too dry. If the issue persist you will need a fungicide that is safe for Bromeliads. Your local garden center should carry a fungicide that will work.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.
