Has definition As the name suggests Honey fungus is a funAs the name suggests Honey fungus is a fungus. It exists primarily on dead plant material, but can also become a parasite feeding on live plant and tree roots. It attacks a wide variety of plant life ranging from trees to bulbs. The first symptom you will probably notice with plants and trees affected by Honey Fungus is general ill-health. Leaves do not grow so well, are discoloured and fruit is small. Surprisingly, flowering plants may produce larger than normal flowers immediately before they die back completely. Then you will notice white to cream honey-coloured growths of the Honey Fungus appearing in the soil around the base of the plant / tree - see the above picture. These growths are fan-shaped.When you pull the plant up, there will probably be dark brown rhizomorphs which look like brown to black root-like growths which resemble bootlaces. In advanced cases these root-like growths appear above the soil level. In many cases, beneath the bark of the trunk and branches you will see white mycelium. These form a thin creamy-white layer with a strong mushroom smell.-white layer with a strong mushroom smell.  +
