“As is the case with most fungi, the morel mushroom that you see is the fruiting body of an organism that has a complicated life cycle. It is not like a plant with roots, so it cannot be expected to grow like one. It emerges from a complex ‘mat layer’ that develops in the top soil layers. The fruiting body (mushroom) must mature and release spores to complete its life cycle.”
