*It could be a couple of things. The mushrooms could have been under the ground you laid the sod on, however, if you have not seen mushrooms in that area in the past, that's probably not the cause. There could have been mushrooms growing on the farm where your sod was grown, though most farmers are careful to watch for and eliminate them. The most likely explanation is that the person installing your new lawn (or yourself) purchased soil or mulch that contained mushrooms to help fortify the ground before installing the grass. Your water and fertilizer simply helped to welcome them to their new home. *It could be old dead tree roots rotting if you sodded because of a tree removal. *Don't worry so much about mushrooms in your lawn. They may form beautiful fairy rings of darker grass. Consider them a blessing. Learn what they are. There are many lawn mushrooms that are edible. You may have some good ones to eat. You will never be able to kill them all, so enjoy them and look forward to their appearance every year. I collect and eat 5 different species from my own yard each year.

Yes certain varieties of psilocybin mushrooms (cubensis) grow out of rabbit feces. I would assume that a large amount of deadly mushrooms grow from rabit manure as well.

Gypsy mushrooms do not grow in tundra's. They prefer temperate climates and all mushrooms require moisture in order for them to grow.

If improperly stored, fungus can grow in magics mushrooms (mushrooms themselves are a speciece(sp?) of fungus). However, magic mushrooms themselves do not cause any diseases, any other than getting a food infection from fungi that can grow on improperly stored magic mushrooms (which can also happen to normal mushrooms or any other type of fresh food).

Seaweeds grow in oceans and seas and it is considered an alga. Mushrooms grow on land and are the fruiting body of a fungus. Mushrooms also grow on things.

Mushrooms (and other fungi) grow from spores, like plants grow from seeds.

Mushrooms grow above and below ground and on trees etc. Most of the cultivated edible mushrooms grow above ground; some on trees or logs. Truffles grow underground.

spores germinate and if they have the right conditions mycelium will grow. once the weather is correct it will fruit and mushrooms will grow.

The fungi that produce mushrooms need a cool (not freezing) damp climate to be able to grow and produce mushrooms.

Sort of. Mushrooms need a bit of moisture, and thunder is often followed by rain. So it's not really the thunder & lightning that brings the mushrooms out, but the accompanying rain that does it.Only rain would work just as well, but not be quite as noticeable.Lightning and thunder cannot cause mushrooms to grow, but they are usually accompanied by rain, and fungi (a mushroom is part of a fungus) grow best in moist environments.

Actually, yes.Exactly 'how' mushrooms derive energy from light remains unknown and under study, but the fact remains that most mushrooms require light to form and grow properly.Mushrooms are not plants, so discussion of chlorophyll and photosynthesis is not applicable to fungi. Mushrooms do however require light to fully develop, and mushrooms grown in the presence of proper lighting grow larger and have a higher finished weight than mushrooms grown with insufficient lighting.

Hi there mushrooms can grow to the size of a size five football. As they are larger they seem to be flatter and not as rounded as the smaller variaties of mushrooms.

Some poisonous mushrooms can grow in cow manure as well as some magic mushrooms do, so be careful if picking.
