Could luminescent fungi be used as an alternative light source in homes if one were to grow them in abundance? Sort of like an organic solar powered light?

Elio replies:
The fungi emit rather small amounts of light . I see your living room lined with pieces of rotting wood, which you would have to moisten form time to time. You're sure you want to do this?
