I was on campus Sunday morning prior to the Baton Rouge Garden Show and was pleased to see that slime molds were everywhere! Especially prominent was one of my favorites, Fuligo septica, the dog vomit slime mold. It’s such a nice shade of yellow when fresh, but it quickly becomes a drab tan or buff color when it dries. For more on this slime mold, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuligo_septica.
