Commission for thunder1 on FA of his character exploring giant glowing mushrooms and getting caught in one of the few downpours the desert gives.
So, it was kinda fun trying to think of a reasonable way this would exist. So let's say for the sake of argument that the mushroom's roots are extremely deep, tapped into an old riverbed that once ran through this canyon. The mushrooms themselves breed a micro-climate of temperate moist air, fueling nearby plants into production. But outside the mushroom's radius, things return back to sand. or cacti. During downpours like this, the mushrooms start loosening their nets to help grab any additional minerals needed.
Mushroom nets like that DO exist: [link]
