Fungus on Live Oak stump

Hi everyone!

Last spring we cut down a Live Oak tree in our yard, and this spring I noticed that the stump is covered (probably a little over an inch thick) with some type of fungus, which I think looks VERY cool! I had a couple of bricks on top of the stump though, and when I took the bricks off there are two rectangular areas with no fungus. Do you think if I break off some of what has grown, fill in those spots, and keep them watered really well that it will all fill in and cover the stump?
