A Glowing Mushroom biome, also known as Glowing Mushroom Fields, is a biome characterized by Mushroom Grass and Glowing Mushrooms growing on Mud Blocks. Giant Glowing Mushrooms can grow to significant heights if room is allowed for them to grow, and will regenerate if chopped down. Most elements of a Glowing Mushroom biome emit a faint glow, including its Mushrooms, Grass, and Giant Glowing Mushrooms, along with some of its enemies. The Truffle NPC requires a house in a Surface (above-ground) Glowing Mushroom biome.

The Underground Glowing Mushroom biome.

Underground Glowing Mushroom biomes are Glowing Mushroom biomes below 0 depth. They can be found naturally, randomly generating on world creation. The background of an Underground Glowing Mushroom biome depicts numerous small mushrooms and several unique mushroom-themed enemies spawn there. Giant Glowing Mushrooms will also grow if there is enough vertical space, though unlike Giant Glowing Mushrooms on the surface, they typically appear without branches.

Surface Glowing Mushroom biomes are Glowing Mushroom biomes above 0 depth. They do not generate naturally and must instead be created by the player. The sun is removed from Surface Glowing Mushroom biomes, making the light level as low as it is at night, even during daytime hours. The background depicts towering mushrooms.

A Glowing Mushroom biome can be created manually by planting Mushroom Grass Seeds (sold by the Dryad in a Glowing Mushroom biome or gathered from harvesting Glowing Mushrooms) in Mud Blocks or spraying a part of Jungle with the Clentaminator using Dark Blue Solution. 101 tiles that are mushroom-related (Mushroom Grass, naturally grown Glowing Mushrooms, Giant Glowing Mushrooms) are required for an area to be considered a Glowing Mushroom biome[1].

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Caution should be taken when creating a Surface Glowing Mushroom biome in Pre-Hardmode, as the enemies that spawn there are much more powerful than other Pre-Hardmode enemies.
