A mushroom (or toadstool) is the fleshy, spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus, typically produced above ground on soil or on its food source. The standard for the name "mushroom" is the cultivated white button mushroom, Agaricus bisporus; hence the word "mushroom" is most often applied to those fungi (Basidiomycota, Agaricomycetes) that have a stem (stipe), a cap (pileus), and gills (lamellae, lamella) on the underside of the cap. These gills produce microscopic spores that help the fungus spread across the ground or its occupant surface. (info from Wikipedia)
These mushroom were growing profusely with my hibiscus. When I watered the hibiscus all the white musrooms turned this color orange. After about 20 minutes, they faded back to white. I do not know the reason for this but would like to know, so if anybody knows, tell me please?
