Glowing fungus is a consumable in Fallout 4.

Background[edit | edit source]

Main article: Glowing fungus

Glowing fungus, or Flammulina velutipes,[1] is a mutated variant of the pre-War fungus. Common in temperate areas, the medicinal properties of the original mushroom have been enhanced by radioactive exposure, allowing it to be used in a variety of potent medicines, such as herbal treatments or even post-War RadAway. The mushrooms have also developed a distinct bioluminescence, making them easily identifiable.[2]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

These common clusters of small green mushrooms exhibit a faint luminescence. They provide 10 hit points at the cost of 3 rads, and are component in several medicines, including RadAway, antibiotics, herbal anodyne, herbal antimicrobial, and herbal stimulant.

Locations[edit | edit source]

  • Glowing fungus is fairly ubiquitous in the Commonwealth, and can be found in the woods, swamps, caves and abandoned buildings.
  • Several clusters can be found in the lobby of Kendall Hospital.
  • A few are found in the mole rat den beneath the Red Rocket truck stop.
