Swamp Fungal Pod is an ingredient in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It can be used to make potions at an alchemy lab as part of alchemy.


Swamp Fungal Pods can be found around the edges of water sources.

Conventional uses[]

  • Swamp Fungal Pod is one of three ingredients required to make one of the most valuable potions. The other two ingredients required are giant's toe and wheat.
  • Combining a swamp fungal pod with an imp stool creates a poison that both heals and paralyses the target — this can be useful if you want to get someone out of the way without killing them. This can also be a useful means of weapon training, as it allows more attacks on a target while minimizing the danger to yourself.
