Dwarf Fortress players, beware: The truth about Floor Fungus

The natural environment around you develops and changes in Dwarf Stronghold, much like your fortress. To completely maximize your foundation, you must understand the hazards and advantages of everything that may develop both above and below the surface of the game environment. When excavating new caves, you may notice yellowish-green growths growing across the new rooms. This is Floor Fungus, and you may be wondering if it is harmful to your foundation and what you can do about it.

Is Dwarf Fortress’s Floor Fungus dangerous?

Floor Fungus is a form of floor tile growth in Dwarf Fortress that is related to simple grass and even more closely related to Cave Moss. It can develop and spread from newly excavated caves as soon as it has a link to the air, which means the entrance to your keep. It resembles Cave Moss but is distinguished by its brighter yellowish tone. You can stop it from growing by cutting or burning it, but it isn’t harmful to your dwarves or your castle. The presence of Floor Fungus in your base has no negative consequences. In fact, there is a method to leverage it to your advantage.

What Should You Do About Floor Fungus in Dwarf Fortress?

Floor Fungus can be fed to cattle and plant-eating animals. To do so, create a Pasture by zoning the fungus-infested region and selecting Pen/Pasture from the Zone menu. Then you may allocate the animals you wish to graze on Floor Fungus to that Pasture, and they will have a new source of food. However, because Floor Fungus grows at a slower pace than grass, some of the larger grazing animals may run out of food if they just eat Floor Fungus.
