That is a pretty good indicator that they were not happy where they were. You can either leave them alone and let them find their own "happy place" or you can reattach them to a piece of rock. You might also want to check your water quality.

Is the rock crowded with mushrooms. They will fall off if there`s not much room.

Water quality is fine but this one rock was home to over 20 baby mushrooms.

I agree. Too crowded. This is their way of thinning out and starting somewhere else.
