Q

Why are tiny mushrooms growing in the pots of my recently repotted orchids?

Why did that happen? And what should I do besides pull up the mushrooms?

Answer

This may be caused by too much water or  planting material that contained mushroom spores which were activated when you watered. In any case I would start over, clean the pot thoroughly, dampen, not soak, the new planting material before you use it to repot the orchid in. Water and thoroughly drain the new planting and don't water again for at least a week depending on how humid or dry the atmosphere is around the plant.
