Growing Glowing Mushrooms
- Not to be confused with the special trail from using the Mushroom Spear or the Hammush, which damages enemies until it dissipates.
Glowing Mushrooms can be found growing on Mushroom Grass. Harvesting these mushrooms has a chance of dropping a Glowing Mushroom and may also yield Mushroom Grass Seeds. They emit their own light, making them quite easy to find. Sometimes it can be generated underwater. If the conditions are right, Giant Glowing Mushrooms will spawn amongst the small ones. These can be harvested with an axe to yield several Glowing Mushrooms and Mushroom Grass Seeds.
- Glowing mushrooms can grow on actuated mushroom grass. They will instantly be harvested.
- Glowing mushrooms are the Mushroom Biome variant of wood. They are dropped from Giant Glowing Mushrooms when harvested, may be placed as a block without crafting them into a block beforehand, and can be crafted into furniture.
- Unharvested ("living") glowing mushrooms act the same as mushroom grass when counting towards whether a mushroom biome is established, but glowing mushrooms placed as blocks do not count, nor do mushroom walls or mushroom furniture.
- The simplest way to monetize a surplus of glowing mushrooms is by making Candelabras.
- If purchasing the torches for the candelabras, upgrading Lesser Healing Potions to Healing Potions is slightly more profitable.
- In Hardmode, making Shroomite Bars is also far more profitable.
