What you see above the ground is really the fruit produced by a "mushroom" the actual fungus that is "the mushroom" is in the underground fibers, these are the things that do the actuall adsorption of nutrientents from the soil or decaying matter. The cap is only there to produce and distribute spores.
Different strains grow, optimally, on different substrates. Mushrooms will grow on anything which fulfills its nutritional requirements. I think button mushrooms are typically grown on compose. But I once saw them growing in the refrigerator on the paper carton they were packaged in from the store.Originally posted by: Qosis

Actually... that's not really true. All those plants rely on photosynthesis for food. A fungi has no such luxury..Originally posted by: HappyPuppy

Mushrooms are no different in their diet, only their environment.
