Glowing fungus is a consumable item in Fallout 4.


It is a common and edible mushroom found in the wastes that induce a small amount of radiation when eaten. It is used in the recipe for RadAway, antibiotics, herbal anodyne, antimicrobial and stimulant in Survival mode. For the Chemist perk, this item is treated as a chem; the HP gained from consuming it will increase.



  • The fungus glows in the dark, making them easy to spot in caves or at night.
  • The fungus usually thrives in humid and radioactive locations, either on the walls of underground caves or around pools of irradiated water.
