The ingredient Black Tar comes from 2 different plants: "Mushroom Tree Saplings", found throughout Dementia including in caves, and "Black Tar", almost always found outdoors. Only the two Dementia varieties of Mushroom Tree Saplings yield Black Tar, one with 33% harvest chance and the other with 66% harvest chance; the two Mania varieties yield Unrefined Greenmote instead. Black Tar is found dripping from the fully-grown mushroom trees, and all four varieties of tar yield ingredient with an 80% harvest chance.
