Nice specimens. It is for sure a Leucocoprinus. I do not see the colour of the scales very accurately, and Leucocoprinus species are often difficult to distinguish, but if the scales are definitely lilac-purplish it may be L. ianthinus/L. lilacinogranulosus (depending if you consider them as different species or not).

It's hard to get the brightness and colours right, but the scales do have a hint of lilac, but they mainly come across as brown.

So you are clearly using Sphagnum as potting media! This last one is linked with Sphagnum.

It looks like the very common Galerina paludosa, although there are some species (and even different genera) of Fungi growing on Sphagnum and developing fruitbodies with a close appearance.
