A cluster of glowing mushrooms

Glowing Mushrooms are a variety of fungus found growing on the walls of most caves, providing a source of light. Note there are two forms of the plant: a cluster of 7 which when harvested leave the center two remaining on the wall, and a single mushroom which leaves only a root stump. Single mushrooms can be hard to pick as the target is only a very thin tendril. As many clusters are a mix of both cluster forms and several single mushrooms, a small formation may actually contain several harvests.


In terms of combinations of two ingredients, Glowing Mushrooms can be combined with 35 other ingredients.

Glowing mushrooms are categorized as uncommon ingredients, meaning they may be randomly found in uncommon- and rare-type apothecary's satchels. They do not appear in the inventories of apothecary merchants (even if the Merchant perk has been unlocked); however a single sample can be purchased from either Elgrim's Elixirs or the Hag's Cure. Unlike several other ingredients that are not stocked by apothecary shops, apothecary merchants will buy glowing mushrooms.


There are 858 glowing mushroom plants in 30 different locations. Locations with the greatest numbers are:


In Blackreach, when entering it from the stairs from Alftand, on the stone walls to the left, there's a cluster of Glowing Mushrooms that are twenty times larger than regular clusters, but they are too far up the rock face to be interacted with.
