The amanita mushroom has an almost-spherical red cap with white spots that sits atop a slender white stalk. It can generate as either one or two blocks high. Like all mushrooms, the amanita mushroom appears in the Organic section in the inventory.
How to Obtain
This mushroom can be found in all world types and can be mined with any pickaxe.
The amanita mushroom is used in part with other mushrooms to get the Forager achievement. It can also be used for decoration purposes. Once the player has mined the tall form of this mushroom, she can place it only as a one-block-tall item.
The amanita mushroom was one of three mushrooms that were added before all others. Early in the game, this mushroom was occasionally generated three blocks tall. Some of these extra-tall mushrooms still exist today in forgotten corners of the oldest worlds.
