Waterleaf is a type of Herb which appears as a very small, aqua-colored sprout. It grows on Sand and Pearlsand 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 it's raining. When fully grown and it's raining, 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. Note that it does not need to be raining directly on the plant in order for it to bloom, rain just needs to be falling. In the mobile version, Waterleaf which is submerged in water will bloom and drop seeds.

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.

One should despawn all minions before harvesting waterleaf, as minions with piecing attacks (and under the right circumstances, ones without them.) will destroy your plants, and will not drop the item/seeds. and if one does not have any extra seeds, you will have to harvest more from a desert.
