Are Mushrooms Photosynthetic?

I was just wondering if I should be feeding them or not.

I haven't done so in the 5 days I've had them.

I've had Mushrooms for about a month, and haven't fed them. Mine are Nuclear Greens, and are photosynthetic. I have read that some of the longer tentacle variaties are carnivores, but I don't have any.

So, yes, mushrooms are photosynthetic (in my experience). I think they will eat any small organic garbage that lands on them. They are pretty much bullet proof.

All mushrooms are photosynthetic and need no supplemental feeding.

I`ve had mine for 15 years and never fed them. As MR X said it is not needed.

LA is usually good for info, but if they are saying you need to feed mushrooms, they are off. I've got several types, never fed and never lost one.
