The Jellyshroom is a non-hazardous type of giant bioluminescent purple fungus found in the Jelly Shroom Caves. Some of the larger Jellyshrooms are home to the Crabsnake. Crabsnakes live inside the hollow trunks and will spring out to ambush the player. Crabsnake eggs can be found inside some Jellyshrooms.

A smaller variety of Jellyshroom can often be found growing around their base.

Jellyshrooms can be harvested with a knife giving Jellyshroom Spores, which can then be planted in the Exterior Growbed or Alien Containment. Sometimes, inside the trunk, minerals can be found.


As the name suggests, the Jellyshroom strongly resembles a fungus with a jellyfish cap. Its stem is dark in colour and robust-looking, whilst its cap is transparent, and a bright bioluminescent purple colour.

It is possible to swim inside the mushroom through the hole at the center of the cap.

Data Bank EntryEdit

A lifeform unique to a microcosm located in a cave system deep within the grassy plateaus, where a high concentration of carnivorous lifeforms wards off smaller predators.

  • Consists of a tough, trunk-like base from which grows a fragile purple membrane
  • Membrane structure suggests vulnerability to predation, but evidence thereof is lacking
  • Unknown defensive mechanisms?
  • Possible symbiotic relationship?

Predators: None identified Assessment: Further investigation suggested

  • The original name of this flora was Jellyshroom, it was changed to Snake Mushroom at one point, though this was reverted to Jellyshroom later.
    • And so, the spawning and development name for the Jellyshroom is the "Snake Mushroom".
