Herbs are plants used at a Placed Bottle to craft potions.

Herbs can be found all across the world, or in Herb Bags, and can be harvested with almost any weapon or tool. Each herb will bloom when certain requirements are met. Herbs harvested while blooming will drop 1-3 seeds of its kind in addition. Herbs can also be grown in Clay Pots or Planter Boxes. There are currently 7 different herbs.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Herb Growth
  • Although each herb has a "native" biome, they can randomly appear anywhere as long as the appropriate block (soil) is present. For example, building a skybridge in Space out of bare dirt will cause Blinkroot to appear.
  • Herb Seeds can be used to create Herb Farms. A dart trap can be used to quickly harvest herbs growing on soil, however herbs growing in clay pots or in Planter Boxes are harvested with a pickaxe or Staff of Regrowth (for a better profit).
  • Herb seeds are named after their herb, eg. Blinkroot Seeds. There are also plain Seeds that are ammunition for the Blowpipe. These latter seeds cannot be planted.
  • A herb will bloom on every occasion which provides its blooming conditions, not just once. For example, Moonglow will bloom each night.[1]
