Details
There are two mushroom patches. Start at the mushroom patch west of Canifis. The simplest way to get to the patch is by using the fairy ring CKS, which teleports you steps from the patch. Once you're there, harvest the mushrooms and plant new ones. Next teleport to the Tirannwn lodestone, go west through the dense forest and run south to the Isafdar mushroom patch. Harvest and replant the mushrooms. The patches have a growing time of 240 minutes. The Morytania achievements help immensely for growing morchella mushrooms -- after completing the Medium achievements, the Morytania patch will be immune from disease, so no supercompost is necessary. However, it is advised to use supercompost on the Isafdar patch as this may become diseased. After completing the Elite Morytania achievements, you'll get double the mushrooms that you would normally, 18 instead of 9, from both patches per patch. The profit above is calculated with the Morytania Elite and Tirannwn Medium achievements completed, but this method is worth doing even if you haven't completed them.
