With the addition of new seasonal mushrooms in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the game just got a lot more interesting. This is especially true if you’re into fungus. The limited-time event items centered around mushrooms will be a specific set of spawns and are directly related to new DIY Recipes.
Players will find Mushrooms in Animal Crossing: New Horizons scattered around hardwood trees, with those players in the southern hemisphere getting the drops this month, and if you live in the northern hemisphere you will get them in November. The DIY Recipes are a different story though. Players can find the recipes scattered around via shooting down the floating presents.
There are multiple varieties of mushrooms, such as skinny, round, and flat mushrooms. The rare mushrooms in Animal Crossing: New Horizons are a bit harder to find though. Players can only find rare mushrooms in Animal Crossing: New Horizons spawning at set locations around the island.
To find rare mushrooms in Animal Crossing: New Horizons you need to take the step of getting a perfect rating for your island. This entails bringing friends to your island and getting them to rate it positively a bunch of times. After you get the rating, find a bare stump somewhere on your island. Keep track of it because you will be coming back here.
Look under the stumps for a glowing marker on the ground similar to the buried Bells you may find scattered around. Dig up the glowing marker with your shovel and you will have a chance for the mushrooms to drop. You only need one rare mushroom for any of the recipes though. This means that it should be pretty easy to complete all the new DIY Recipes.
