is a type of Herb
which appears as a very small, aqua-colored sprout. It grows on Sand
blocks in any type of Desert
biomes and can be cut with virtually any weapon or tool. It can also be planted in Clay Pots
using Waterleaf Seeds
. The Waterleaf takes the longest to bloom out of all the herbs.
Waterleaf is a finicky plant, and will only bloom when submerged in water. Using Water Buckets and Clay Pots in an enclosed area is one option. When fully grown and watered, it will bloom and its appearance will change, becoming larger and speckled with aqua leaves. A blooming Waterleaf will also emit little globes of water.
Harvesting it while it is blooming will drop 1-3 Waterleaf Seeds.
Waterleaf can grow on sand underground if it is placed or converted by the transition to Hardmode; this includes Ebonsand and Pearlsand.
