Habitat

Shimmershrooms are an invention of the [Arkenheart Alchemical Society]. Taking the rapid growth properties from a sample of [blood shroom] and combining it with the iron synthesizing elements of shimmervine. These fungi are capable of turning ligneous material into tall mushrooms. The stems of these mushrooms can be smelted to extract trace amounts of iron.

The spores dropped from the head are toxic causing rashes and harsh coughs. Unlike most fungi, the spores do not result in spreading growth of mycelium. Once the heads have gone though a dry curing process, they are perfectly edible, if a little unpalatable for most tastes.

Farming

Shimmershrooms are farmed on highly specialized patches that must be inoculated with mycelium by a trained [alchemist].
