Yahoo News reports that an Australian gardener stumbled across a strange sight in his garden.

He found a mass that looked like caviar covering the base and stem of a strawberry plant.

The gardener from Melbourne, Australia claimed that the strange growth showed up overnight.

He took to social media to seek help identifying it.

According to an expert, the growth was slime mold, most likely the species Lindbladia tubulina.

Slime molds are not known to be toxic to humans or pets. They might also exhibit anti-microbial activity and are not directly harmful to plants. Eventually, they tend to disappear after a while.
