Harvesting the Planter less than one day after planting it will only yield the one mushroom that was planted. After a day, the amount of mushrooms growing on the Planter will increase, up to 4 mushrooms per harvest or 6 if a spore was used. They take 3.75 days to fully grow and can be harvested 4 times before it must be refueled with Living Logs.
Mushrooms can be grown through all seasons except Winter on the surface. During Winter, the mushrooms will all turn into Rot. However, it can still be grown all year round in the Caves, hence making it a reliable and sustainable method of Mushroom farming in Caves.
- A good method of using mushroom farming is to make camp near a green and blue Mushtree Forest, where one can collect spores of Blue Mushtrees in Winter and Green Mushtrees in Spring. This method yields of Blue Mushrooms for Health and Hunger and Green Mushrooms for Sanity, at a continuous cost of Living Logs.
