How to get and use Shroomlight in Minecraft?

Here's how to get shroomlight in Minecraft.

Shroomlight is a special light block in Minecraft that can be used in a similar way as glowstone. However, getting shroomlight, will require going to the Nether and locating it inside Warped or Crimson Forest.

Inside these biomes, the block can be found growing near either nether wart blocks or warped wart blocks. These blocks can be found inside what are called huge fungus, which is basically trees that spawn in the Nether, like the one shown above.

When you locate one of these huge fungi trees, you can break the shroomlight block to get the block to use later. You can also break the block with any tool, but if you want to get the job done the fastest way, a hoe would be the way to go.

That being said, once you have the block, you can then use shroomlight as a light source similar to what we said already, glowstone. You can also use it to make bonemeal via composter, as shroomlight has a 65 percent chance of raising the compost level.

If this sounds like your kind of thing, you place shroomlight in the composter by clicking on the composter while you are holding the shroomlight block.
