Is "Montako sientä kasvaa tuolla" acceptable? Or sounds weird in Finnish?

It's acceptable, but "Montako sientä tuolla kasvaa?" sounds much more natural.

The first "there" is superfluous. "How many mushrooms are growing over there" is fine.

"kuinka monta sientä tuolla kasvaa" is also correct

''Kuinka moni sieni kasvaa tuollla'' might sound weird, but maybe? anyone?

You are talking about quantity here, need to use partitive - "monta sientä".
