Doesn't require much, and the change is noticeable after less than a week.
It is a mycelial mat formed by a Coprinellus species from the section Domestici. The scientific name for such a mycelial structure is 'ozonium'. Several ascomycetes also make these structures. As far as I know, mycology (science of Fungi) does not know what the purpose of these structures is, yet. I think it has a simillar function as a sclerotium (like Polyporus tuberaster, Claviceps purpurea, Collybia ss and some Psilocybe species have). A sclerotium (plu. sclerotia) is a tuber like mycelial structure, in which the fungus stores nutrients for when the conditions are harsh. Here's a collage I've made of Coprinellus domesticus (type species of Coprinellus sect. Domestici), on which you can see the mushroom fruiting from the ozonium.
Like how you ran with it.

I have worked mostly with small companies / start-ups, building whatever is required and chasing moving targets. I still do some of this, keeping up on technology, tools, and trying to stay bleeding edge. (There's too many edges though.)
I like to know how things work, including the internet, physics, science, chemistry, biology.
