    Simplified life cycle of a mushroom. Of the many spores produced by a mushroom, only a tiny number will land where they can germinate – to produce hyphae. Hyphae of different species may grow in soil or in wood and may later form a tiny mushroom button. This then grows, and the stalk and cap expand to become a mushroom. (Some other fungi have quite different life cycles.)
