Have you heard that morels appear overnight?

It’s something I have always been told, but never knew for sure if it was true. Until now. This neat video shows you the growth of a mushroom in a time lapse-video. It turns out, they grow slowly over a period of up to three weeks!

I hope the next time the man leaves the video camera at home, and picks the mushrooms before they die.

Anyway, thanks for proving what many of us already knew.

  1. What?!, wait, Lemme get this straight. This is outside right?, not inside?, 100% untouched, undisturbed nature?, not and inside/outside “morel mushroom garden” I’ve seen on the Internet? Or did he just randomly place a camera or even multiple cameras for that matter… And happened to get lucky? And only daytime filming and no night time? Regardless of if it “pops-up” overnight, or during the day, it DOES “pop-up”…. Right? It breaks the ground and stands up and THEN continues to grow for approximately 15 days. I’m skeptical of this for the fact I have hugged morels for YEARS, I have literally multiple spots I check every year and I could get you there blindfolded. However, there has been times when I check my spots and there’s nothing, I go back the next day and BOOM, not just small ones, decent size mushrooms that caught my eye from a distance bc of there height, now I enter my spots in the same area each time, park right by a certain sign on the road and go in so I wouldn’t have missed them the day before…… Idk exactky but something about THIS video isn’t right.
