In my conworld (planet Earth at the end of the last Ice Age), the
Children of Stone (who are remembered by humans as dwarves) live in
caverns.  They are skilled in fungiculture (I made that up, but it
looks good to me!) and have produced mushrooms et al. with all
different kinds of sizes, colors and flavors.  They are a staple in
their diet.  They have also developed several species which
phosphoresce in different colors which are used to illuminate the
various subterranean passages.  The phosphorescent light is not
brilliant but enough for them to find their way, especially
considering that they have a tapetum as do many nocturnal mammals.
