A small "moss chamber" featuring green moss, which has spread to stone outside of the chamber, and a matching back wall.

Moss is a grass-like plant that grows on stone blocks. It comes in five colors, and one color can be found throughout each third of a given map (three colors per world), either randomly on cave surfaces or in "moss chambers" with a matching mossy stone wall. Moss sprouts fuzz that can be cut like grass weeds, and mossy stone requires one more hit to break than clean stone, but otherwise moss does nothing. Moss will be destroyed if the stone block it is on becomes ebonstone, crimstone, or pearlstone.
Fire Moss is a special variant of Moss that can grow in the lava layers of the Cavern. Fire Moss glows in the dark as lava does.

Spread[edit | edit source]

Moss slowly spreads across exposed stone blocks. Although there are no moss seeds, a player can grow extra moss by building "bridges" of stone for existing moss to grow across or by using the Staff of Regrowth on the stone blocks. Moss cannot grow or spread above zero depth, but can be placed above zero depth with the Staff of Regrowth.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Added Fire Moss. Staff of Regrowth can now place Moss on bare Stone.
  • 1.2: Introduced.
