The Mana Pool is a vital block featured in Botania. It is the most important block for Mana storage in Botania, being able to store an extremely large amount of Mana inside (100x more than the Diluted Mana Pool.) Mana stored in the pool can be used to power other blocks in Botania that require Mana to function, such as functional flowers.
Mana can be inserted into the Mana Pool via a Mana Spreader, and any adjacent Mana Spreaders will pull Mana from it to fill their internal buffer. The amount of Mana in a pool can be displayed as a bar by right-clicking the Mana Pool with a Wand of the Forest.
Many resources can be thrown into the Mana Pool, causing them to be infused and turn into more powerful forms. For example, an Iron Ingot can be thrown into the pool, and the pool will return a Manasteel Ingot. This process is called infusing, and cannot be done with a Diluted Mana Pool.
The NEI recipe displays for Mana Infusion or Runic Altar recipes contain a Mana bar displaying how much Mana the recipes consume. These Mana bars show Mana consumption relative to the capacity of a Mana Pool.
