I just had the best idea ever: A self-harvesting Glowing Mushroom farm using Dart Traps.

However, since they don't exactly grow on trees, I'd like to use a minimum amount of Dart Traps for a maximum of Mushroom-covered ground.

Does anyone know how far a Dart Trap can fire a poison dart? They just seem to go in a straight line, but is their range actually infinite, or does the dart drop to the ground or disappear at some point?

According to the wiki, darts can go for 2700 blocks.

As far as I can tell their range is infinite.

From tests on a large world I went through at least 3 biomes (after cutting some holes in the ground) before hitting a large mountain I did not want to tunnel through (so at least a thousand feet or so).
