Mycelium is a particularly rare variant of dirt that is only found naturally in mushroom fields biomes. It has a particle effect that resembles tiny spores being released constantly from the surface.

Obtaining[edit]

Breaking[edit]

Mycelium can be obtained by mining it using a tool with the Silk Touch enchantment. If mined with any other tool or by hand, it drops dirt. A shovel is the fastest tool to collect it.

Mob loot[edit]

Endermen can pick up mycelium blocks, and drop the block they are holding if killed.

Usage[edit]

Spread[edit]

A mycelium block can spread to any dirt block within one space above, one sideways, or three down. The mycelium needs light level 9+ above it and the dirt needs light level 4+ above it, and must not be covered by any light-impeding block or any opaque block. Mycelium reverts to dirt when covered by one of the light-impeding blocks above and the light level at that block is below 4. The death and spread behavior is checked when a random tick lands on the block.

If there is a plant on a dirt block when mycelium spreads to it, the plant pops out and drops as an item.

Trivia[edit]

  • It is a common misconception that only mooshrooms can spawn on mycelium. This is not true; it is the biome itself that prevents other mobs from spawning. Friendly and hostile mobs can spawn on mycelium in any other biome just like they do on any other block. Similarly, mycelium outside of a mushroom biome does not spawn mooshrooms.
  • In real life, mycelium is the part of a fungus that gathers nutrients, comprised of web-like threads known as hyphae. Mycelium can be considered the roots of a fungus, whereas the mushrooms can be considered the fruits.
