Spores are a drop from Sporelings. They can be planted in Dug Swamp Grass, Dug Swamp Dirt, or Dug Purified Swamp Dirt that has been fertilized with Compost to grow a Yellow Dotted Fungus crop that will produce edible mushroom items.
It will grow over time until ready to be harvested, and its growth can be sped with Ground Dried Swamp Reed. Spores will also drop from the harvested crop. When harvested at full maturity, the crop will drop Yellow Dotted Fungus and more Spores. However, its growth will halt if the composted block it is growing on become Decayed Composted Swamp Dirt or Decayed Composted Swamp Grass; if the plant is mature when this happens, it will decay as well, dropping nothing but Spores and spawning a live Sporeling at its location.
