Mushrooms naturally generate in poorly lit areas (light level of 12 or less). If this condition met, each chunk has 1⁄8 chance to generate red mushroom and 1⁄4 chance to generate brown mushroom.
In Bedrock Edition, fallen oak, birch, spruce, and jungle trees have 0–2 mushroom generated on horizontal logs.
Mushrooms can be instantly mined with anything.
Mining a huge mushroom block drops up to 2 mushrooms of the same color.
Mushrooms can be planted and grown on blocks in light levels below 13 and not directly underneath the sky. If planted on mycelium or podzol, they can stay planted in any light level. Both brown and red mushrooms grow at the same rate regardless of the light level.
Besides being mined directly, mushrooms are dropped as items if:
- the block below them falls, is moved, or destroyed;
- a fluid flows over them;
- it is above light level 12 and a block updates next to it and it is not on podzol or mycelium.
|Brown Mushroom||1 (100%)|
|Red Mushroom||1 (100%)|
When bone meal is applied to a mushroom, the mushroom has a chance to grow into a huge mushroom of the same color, provided that it is on a proper block (dirt, coarse dirt, grass, podzol or mycelium), has enough space, and that the light level is dark enough.
Every game tick, a mushroom has a 1% chance of spreading to an adjacent block (even above and below diagonally) if there are fewer than five mushrooms of the same type in a 9×9×3 volume around the original mushroom.
Brown mushrooms emit a barely visible light level of 1.
Either type of mushroom can be planted in a flower pot.

Placing a mushroom into a composter has a 65% chance of raising the compost level by 1.
