    I put some seeds on mulchy soil in a terrarium, and these came up.

    They are growing fast. They were completely closed this morning, when the picture with the quarter was taken.

    More photos as they progress.

    Pretty! They look like one of the formerly-known-as-Coprinus: Any big enough to check spore colour? Is the "bloom" on the cap surface more powdery or more crystalline?

    Last Pic 11:30 pm.

    The much has gone very black all around the mushrooms. It's not spores because it was not on the stipes or the base.

    A nice visit while it lasted....

    Now a confirmed Coprinoid.

    How come everyone else gets cool stuff growing with their plans? First the Leucocoprinus lilacinogranulosus, now this one ...
