I don’t doubt they could be Conocybe

I think this is a Conocybe sp.

Due to the bulbous base, striations at the apex of the stipe, conical cap, pubescent stipe, and close gills. Seeing as how many flower pot / “potted mushrooms” are all tweaked and warped due to the conditions. That being said, i can do micro if you would like to prove/disprove my theory.

A long shot id is Conocybe pubescens…
was it very pubescent/pruinose.
