What the heck is this?

All of a sudden Mutinus caninus or Stinkhorn mushrooms have popped up all over my yard, they seem to pop up in a matter of a few hours? There is nothing at midnight then 10-15 of them by 6am? is this possible???

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

the underground mycelium colony is fruiting because conditions are right. Each set of mushrooms each night is called a flush and usually a colony can only flush several times in a row before it's totally spent and dies.

But yea, they grow FAST++ when they're flushing.
