1. How to grow Mushrooms in Minecraft

Luckily, crafting a mushroom farm in Minecraft is a relatively simple task. Although you can totally shear some mooshroom cow to cultivate 5 mushrooms instantly or rifle a whole cave for the same purpose, building a mushroom farm will be the ultimate solution.

Here’s a step-to-step process to create a mushroom farm in Minecraft:

  • Craft a room that is two blocks high and horizontally large.
  • Dig a block up to the ceiling and put down a torch for recessed lighting. (This will allow the mushrooms to grow and spread).
  • Put one torch every 6 squares to prevent dangerous monsters and mobs from spawning.
  • Spread the mushrooms on the ground and wait for them to grow.

This method will allow you to have an unlimited source of brown and red mushrooms. The material does not require sand, water, or any extra space.

Besides, mushrooms are placeable everywhere in Minecraft world, except well-lit zones or on transparent blocks. As mushroom farming has to include low-lit indoor rooms, it poses the danger of monsters spawning in the same place. But planting torches can solve this.

2. How to get mushroom blocks in Minecraft

#1. Using silk touch

Apart from how to grow mushrooms in Minecraft, getting mushroom blocks is also an inevitable need. In this case, you can obtain Mushroom blocks by using a tool enchanted with the Silk Touch.

This enchantment helps you get blocks that don’t typically drop by themselves. Without it, you will get either no mushroom block or some regular mushrooms of the same kind.

How do you break a giant mushroom in Minecraft? Mushroom blocks can br broken most quickly with an axe, dropping 0–2 mushroom items of the respective type.

FYI, small mushrooms do not naturally grow into huge mushrooms.

#3. Breeding Mooshrooms

You can also farm mushroom from Mooshrooms in Minecraft. Follow these steps in case you have not had any Mooshroom in your game.

  • To grow wheat, start by cutting tall grass to gather seeds. Plant these seeds in tilled soil near water and wait for the wheat to fully grow before harvesting it.
  • Search for a mushroom island. If you find one with two or more mooshrooms, you can breed them for mushrooms and steaks. Mooshrooms are red cows with mushrooms growing on them and can only be found on mushroom islands.
  • Enclose the mooshrooms with a fence. If you find multiple mooshrooms, build a fence around them to keep them together.
  • Feed the mooshrooms wheat harvested from your crops. This will make them ready to breed. When they breed, they will produce a baby mooshroom. You can breed them as much as you want to get more mooshrooms.
  • Shear the mooshrooms with shears once you have three or more of them. This will give you mushrooms. Shearing turns them into regular cows. You can make shears using two iron bars and a crafting table.
  • To collect the mushrooms, simply walk over them after shearing a mooshroom.
