Mushroom Farming Mechanics

Substrates

Each mushroom grows better in a specific substrate. It grows adequately in one of the low level substrates (Dirt, Bone or Meat), and very well in one of the high level substrates (Organs, Limbs or Exotic).

Some substrates can be produced from any item with a certain keyword:

Some higher level mushroom boxes require multiple doses of substrate, instead of just one.

Moon Phases

Mushrooms also grow robustly if harvested during two (specific to the mushroom) out of the eight moon phases, and poorly in two others. Moon phase in game matches real life, based on GMT time zone. The current moon phase can be checked with the Moon Phase Check Lore recipe.

Mushroom Boxes

Mushroom boxes are made with Carpentry and Mushroom Farming recipes. Lucky boxes have a 33% chance for harvesting a second type of mushroom and can last once, 12 hours or 24 hours. Practice boxes have a slower grow time, but yield more XP per mushroom. Fast boxes grow mushrooms 20% faster than normal, but have a -50% XP penalty per mushroom.

Box Duration and Clearing Boxes

Some mushroom boxes have a duration (other boxes typically grow only a single crop). For these boxes, the player will be able to start a new cycle as long as there is any time left on the box. If this new cycle uses up the remaining time on the box, the in-game interface will inform you that this will be the last crop this box will be fit to grow.

At any time, the player may opt to clean out a mushroom box. For a box with duration remaining, a new crop may then be started, requiring a new starter mushroom, and a new dose of substrate (or multiple doses, depending on box type).

Number of Boxes

A number of boxes can be placed simultaneously, depending on Mushroom Farming level:

  • Two boxes to start
  • Three boxes at Level 41

Example

I head to New Prestonbule Cave, and remove some
icon_5140.png
 
from storage. I use a Carpentry recipe to produce two
icon_5787.png
 
. I also remove some
icon_5014.png
 
from storage and along with the water and dirt in my inventory, i'm able to produce the other intermediate ingredients and finally two
icon_5311.png
 
. Having already checked that it is the New Moon (and consulted an online reference so I know it will still be the New Moon at harvest time when it counts), I plan to grow
icon_5782.png
 
, as these grow robustly during the New Moon. They grow best in
icon_5168.png
 
, so I pull a stack of that out of storage, along with a couple of Fly Amanitas to get the boxes started.

I choose a location a little out of the way near a wall, where I will remember where my boxes are. I deploy both boxes, adding one mushroom to each, along with the two doses of substrate the interface informs me each box requires. I can now see that the boxes have 48 hours remaining and that this crop will be done in 22.5 hours (the 15 hour base * 150% because High Yield Boxes have 50% slower growth).

I make a note of the time window. I need to come back after 22.5 hours so the crop will be ready, but ideally with another 22.5 hours still "on the clock". From the 48 hour total, this gives me 28 - 2 * 22.5 = a 3 hour window. If I make it back in time, i'll be able to grow a second crop, and then a third if I again harvest that second crop before the 48 hours has expired. If I harvest the first crop after 25.5 hours, there will be less than 22.5 hours left, and I will only be able to produce one more crop of Fly Amanita with these boxes.
