Bursting mushrooms are a type of large mushroom with a white stalk and red and white spotted cap. When approached, a bursting mushroom will swell and shrink rapidly before violently exploding with enough force to damage a human. After presumably being disarmed in some fashion, sliced bursting mushrooms can be used as a potion ingredient in such potions as the Fire Protection Potion. Bursting mushrooms grow in forests such as the Forbidden Forest in Scotland.
