The extremely long growth time and small harvest makes devilstrand mushrooms the most difficult crop to grow in the game by far. Players must be prepared to set aside huge patches of land to grow any useful amount of devilstrand. These mushrooms can't be grown in hydroponics basins. Players must additionally protect this crop from wildfires, raider arson, poison ships, hungry wildlife, and even hungry pets. Due to their long growth time, devilstrand is usually at a risk of succumbing to the cold of winter before it's ready for harvest. However, when fully grown, devilstrand cloth is highly valuable and can sell for lots of silver. Because of its growing and security issues, players might be best off growing them in a temperature controlled outdoor building with sun lamps.


Sowing devilstrand mushrooms requires a minimum growing skill of 10, but any colonist capable of plant cutting can harvest them.

Players looking for a quick and reliable source of cloth for construction are better off planting a small growing area of cotton plant.

Devilstrand is immune to blight.
