On the fourth day, they are all collapsed and their black heads (sporangia) are glued up on the plastic wrap roof.

Put a piece of paper towel in a small dish, cover it with water, put (cow, horse, …) dung in it, cover the dish with plastic wrap, and after three days your dream will come true. Cannot be easier.

The mushrooms are about 5 mm tall. I added a picture from which I made a crop; the dung piece is about 3 cm across.

one of my dream is to see those…
