mushroom is also a plant, but cannot prepare its own food . however green plants can. why it is so?
actually mushroom is a type of fungi which cannot makes its own food. the plants which have a green colour and chlorophyll is present in them only they can prepare their own food. chlorophyll is a green substance present in leaves. so, mushroom does not have a chlorophyll that's why mushroom does not makes its own food. it takes food from dead and decaying matter
