It is completely natural and unlike man-made luminescence is not triggered by light. Even though they glow 24 hours a day, it is not possible for humans to see them glow during daylight.

A study in bioluminescence
Bioluminescence is the production and emission of light by a living organism. Its name is a hybrid word, originating from the Greek bios for "living" and the Latin lumen "light".
Panellus Stipticus is a basidiomycete that grows on wood and produces fruiting bodies similar to oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus spp.) This is one of the brightest glowing fungi that can be seen with the naked eye. it glows best when cultivated on wood substrates as recommended in this kit. Many species are luminescent, but most are only visible under a micoscope or in very low-light conditions. The primordia, pins and mushrooms themselves glow very brightly and can be easily observed in less than complete darkness, however, even with the Panellus Stipticus, you will need to allow your eyes to adjust to the darkness. once they have, you will be amazed by this mushroom.
