Giant Mushrooms - No mycelium!

Postby nzspottyfur » 14 Feb 2014, 23:43

Edit: Neil has made a mini tutorial in the replies for a much smaller giant mushroom farm which uses less materials. I would only recommend my one for those who want more levels or have a lot of blocks they want to use :)

Are you as desperate as I am to complete the shroom-picker challenge? Are you sick of waiting ages for your mushrooms to spread? Have you used lots of your dirt to make a big mushroom farm? If you answered yes to at least one of those questions, then this tutorial may help :D

You will need:
- A few stacks of a block of your choice (a bit less if you use slabs for the roof)
- 1 Dirt
- 1 Mushroom
- Some bonemeal

Steps:

Step 1: The outline

Build a 9x9 square of cobblestone with torches in this arrangement;

Image

Step 2: Walls

Build the walls 7 blocks high;

Image

Your structure should now look like this;

Image

Step 3: The roof

Use your blocks or slabs to build a roof like this;

Image

Finished!

How to use it:

(Do the first step efficiently, as you don't want mobs to spawn.)

Step 1:

Break all the torches and place the mushroom down in the middle and use bonemeal on it to make it grow;

Image

Step 2:

Place torches back down on the ground and mine out your giant mushroom :D

Image

Do not forget to place the torches back down once you are done!

Quick note: Turns out you don't need to break the four torches in the corners to plant the mushrooms :D

You can also make the floor half slabs and then mobs won't spawn even if it's dark :)

Apologies for hijacking this thread, but you don't actually need to create the entire room to grow them, it only has to be dark to plant them and dark enough for them to not pop off the dirt when you grow them.

So you can just create this basic structure:

Image

Then hop inside, place the cobble block above your head (so it's totally dark) and plant the mushroom like so:

Image

Then just smash out the top block you just placed and one of the side blocks so you can get out and you'll end up with:

Image

You must leave that bottom layer or cobble as even in daytime it makes it just dark enough for them to not pop off the floor. Finally just bonemeal that and voila:

Image

Hope that helps/saves some time! :D

You can also do a 2x2 shape like this, with water in the middle:

Image

Then you can plant the mushroom where the water is:

Image

Then it can be bonemealed:

Image

I just thought this would be easier, as a room isn't needed.
