Mushroom Spores are items exclusive to Don't Starve Together. Their color depends on the blooming Mushtree or Funcap they spawned from. If left alone, they will float around aimlessly for a short time, emitting a small radius of light, and then disappear after a short time. They can also be caught with a Bug Net and then put inside the Glowcap to make it glow in various colors. 

The spores can be planted in a Mushroom Planter, eventually yielding 6 mushrooms.

Spores begin spoiling as soon as they spawn. When floating about, their time to spoil is only 3 day segments (90 seconds), but when collected, their total spoil time is 15 days in player inventory or chests and 30 days in Insulated pack, Snow Chester, or Glowcap. Despite their spoil time being affected by the former 2, spores cannot be put in an Ice Box. When completely spoiled, spores leave nothing.

Prototype Tips Edit

  • Because of their extremely fast spoilage rate when floating around, it is advised to only catch freshly-spawned spores to avoid decreasing the overall freshness of the stack in player's inventory.

Mosquito BugsEdit

  • Wearing a Funcap next to the Ocean can cause a Spore to spawn in the ocean.
