Secondly, it is best to grow them in the dark, or with very little light.
It is best if you find a large amount and plant them on the ground. In an wide open area - also I've noticed that Mushrooms tend to grow a bit faster on Stone.

Otherwise yeah, just plant mushrooms and leave them be.

Just be careful i havent been able to find the right combination of enough light for them to grow/spread and enough light so mobs dont spawn... I have had many a creeper spawn in my shroom shed. I suggest the slab suggestion by aurospace creeper for a quick fix.

Mushrooms spread to adjacent blocks when the light level is low. (6 or lower i think). So the optimal placement would be like so:
They spread prettly quickly. I like to use cobblestone under the mushrooms because it makes identifying where to replant easier. Plus if you raise the mushrooms 1 block you can use water to gather them all and not have to replant.

Don't know why the screen shot is so dark, but its increadibly bright. No mobs at night bright.
After I built my mushroom farm, I started randomly planting them under trees. Plant one under each tree. Walk away for a little bit, come back and they have turned into two or three. Before you know it, they have spread everywhere.
My shroom farm
No mobs ever in the farm. Is waayyyy brighter than it looks in the pic. Find some red mushrooms, and build this. There is a torch 2-blocks under with a trap door and a glass block on top for light. No mobs have ever surprised me from showing up in there.
Red ones are by far easiest and safest to grow imo.

I did not know, however, mushrooms could be farmed...
I wish they had put sugar canes (whatever they're called) on the tutorial world, or at least give us all some when they update. I have built a massive world, but cannot make anything paper based...

A simpler, manual mushroom house is pretty easy if you know the rules. As FayzedNZ mentioned, mushrooms will grow in light levels 12 and lower (I don't think there is any good evidence that they grow any faster in even lower light, however). What we need, then, is to get the light 12 or less, but keep it 8 or more so that hostile mobs don't spawn (hostile mobs need light of 7 or less to spawn, this is measured at the floor).
The solution is to build a 2-block high room, and knock out recessed torches in the ceiling every so often. Torches are light level 14, so the floor underneath will be level 12. Throw a normal wooden door on it, and put a couple of blocks over the top so the door doesn't get direct sunlight.
I've confirmed that this simple room grows mushrooms just fine (not super fast, but fine).
