Fungal Mould is a resource.


Fungal Mould (Ml) is a resource and one of the Harvested Agricultural Substance flora elements.

The British spelling of this phrase is used in the wiki.

Game description[]

An oddly-glowing substance, harvested from the gills of Fungal Clusters.

The host plant requires a toxic climate to thrive in the wild, but can be farmed in all environments with the aid of a Hydroponics Tray.


Collecting Fungal Mould in the wild

As described in the Summary, this element can be obtained from specific reddish-brown mushrooms on toxic planets. Safely harvesting this resource requires the use of Haz-Mat Gauntlet.

With assistance from a Farmer, Fungal Mould can also be grown as a product of the Fungal Cluster plant, with a harvest time of 4 hours yielding 50 Fungal Mould.

Fungal Mould can be refined using a Refiner with the following ingredients:

  • SUBSTANCE.PLANT.TOXIC.png Fungal Mould x1  +  SUBSTANCE.BIOME.TOXIC.png Ammonia x1  →  SUBSTANCE.PLANT.TOXIC.png Fungal Mould x2  ("Organic Expansion", 0.9 sec./unit output)
  • SUBSTANCE.BIOME.TOXIC.png Ammonia x2  +  SUBSTANCE.AIR.1.png Oxygen x1  →  SUBSTANCE.PLANT.TOXIC.png Fungal Mould x1  ("Encourage Growth", 0.9 sec./unit output)
  • SUBSTANCE.BIOME.TOXIC.png Ammonia x1  +  GAS.1.png Nitrogen x1  →  SUBSTANCE.PLANT.TOXIC.png Fungal Mould x1  ("Encourage Growth", 0.6 sec./unit output)



Fungal Mould is used as an ingredient for crafting the following products:


Fungal Mould is used as an ingredient for refining the following products using a Refiner:

  • SUBSTANCE.BIOME.TOXIC.png Ammonia  --  Fungal Mould x2  +  Salt x1  →  SUBSTANCE.BIOME.TOXIC.png Ammonia x1  ("Floral Titration", 0.9 sec./unit output)
  • SUBSTANCE.FUEL.1.png Carbon  --  Fungal Mould x1  →  SUBSTANCE.FUEL.1.png Carbon x2  ("Burn Plantlife", 0.3 sec./unit output)
  • SUBSTANCE.PLANT.TOXIC.png Fungal Mould  --  Fungal Mould x1  +  Ammonia x1  →  SUBSTANCE.PLANT.TOXIC.png Fungal Mould x2  ("Organic Expansion", 0.9 sec./unit output)
  • SUBSTANCE.AIR.1.png Oxygen  --  Fungal Mould x1  +  Kelp Sac x1  +  Condensed Carbon x1  →  SUBSTANCE.AIR.1.png Oxygen x10  ("Artificial Photosynthesis", 9 sec./unit output)


Fungal Mould is used as an ingredient for cooking the following products using a Nutrient Processor:

Additional information[]

  • Having "Optical Drill" and "Mining beam upgrades" installed on the multi-tool increases the harvest yield amount.
  • Fungal Mould can be used to make Fibrous Stew without needing any other ingredients. After cooking the mould to create Non-Toxic Mushrooms, placing the product back into the Nutrient Processor will create Fibrous Stew.
