Fume-Shroom is the first plant that has an area-of-effect attack, meaning that one shot can hit multiple zombies at a time. Fume-Shrooms are available after beating Level 2-2. Fume-Shrooms have a range of 4 squares and one shot will hit all zombies in the 4 squares. Buying an upgrade from Dave’s Shop will turn Fume-Shroom plants into Gloom-Shroom plants.
Putting 2-3 Fume-Shrooms behind a Wall-Nut or Tall-Nut creates a great situation for zombies to pile up at the Wall-Nut while taking sustained damage from the Fume-Shrooms. Their fumes shoot through screen doors and ladders, which is important when dealing with Screen Door Zombies and the like. Fume-Shrooms are also great at dealing with Dancing Zombies, as they can hit the Backup Dancers as well as the lead dancer.
