Yes, they can grow in sand, or at least in dry conditions. I had two pretty yellow mushrooms sprout out of the dry soil in my potted cactus! They're lepiota lutea, which have a habit of growing in potted plants. Not all mushrooms need lots of moisture to live. It would be interesting to see if they could survive in Mars-like conditions.
