Plants

Jump to: navigation, search

Plants are found all across a Terraria world, and may grow from certain block types given various conditions. Most can be harvested for use, and may additionally drop seeds for replanting, such as Jungle grass and seeds. Different biomes generally have distinct plant life.

Grass[edit | edit source]

Grass enables many plants to grow on it, and covers most of the aboveground landscape. There are six types of grass: Normal, Corrupt, Crimson, Mushroom, Jungle and Hallowed.

Moss[edit | edit source]

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, or can be collected using a Paint Scraper on Desktop version Desktop version 1.4.0.1, where it can be placed on stone or Gray Bricks, or used to craft mossy stone walls. Mossy stone requires one more hit to break than clean stone. Moss will be destroyed if the stone block it is on converts to ebonstone, crimstone, or pearlstone.

Desktop, Console, and Mobile Versions Lava Moss is a special variant of moss that can only be found in the lava layers of the Cavern, though if harvested, it can be planted at any level. Despite not being considered one of the Glowing Mosses, it glows in the dark.

Desktop Version Glowing Mosses are special variants of moss that grow in Glowing Moss Caves in much larger areas than standard moss, and glow in the dark similarly to lava moss. It comes in three versions: Krypton, Xenon, and Argon. Only one type of Glowing Moss can be found in each world, in a total of up to 2 (Small) / 3 (Medium) / 4 (Large) areas in the Cavern layer, mostly above the lava layers, but not under the Spawn area.

Herbs[edit | edit source]

Herbs are used at a Placed Bottle or an Alchemy Table to craft potions. They can be found all across the world, or in Herb BagsDesktop, Console, and Mobile Versions, 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 their kind in addition. Herbs can also be grown in Clay Pots or Planter BoxesDesktop, Console, and Mobile Versions. There are currently 7 different types of herbs. In addition to their natural soil, herbs can also be grown in Clay Pots, or Desktop, Console, and Mobile Versions within Planter Boxes.

Vines[edit | edit source]

Vines
Vines.png Jungle vines.png Hallowed vines.png Crimson vines.png
Regular vine Jungle vine Hallowed vine Crimson vine

(Needs update since 1.4 there are 5 vine types with flowery vines added) Vines are plants that grow downward from blocks. Given there is enough empty space, they can reach a length of up to ten tiles. Although they block light, they do not impede movement and can easily be destroyed with nearly any weapon or tool. Destroying a tile of a vine destroys all tiles of the vine below it and destroying the topmost tile or mining the block it hangs from will destroy the entire vine.

There are four different types of vines: Regular vines (grow from Grass and Leaf Blocks), Jungle vines (grow from Jungle grass blocks), Hallowed vines (grow from Hallowed grass blocks), and Crimson vines (grow from Crimson grass blocks). There is no Corruption variant of vines. Vines can only grow above the surface (with the exception of Jungle vines which can grow at any elevation) and only from blocks that are not sloped on their underside.

Vines can be painted. New vines growing from painted blocks will take on the color of that block and vine tiles spawned by naturally extending vines will take on the color of the existing tip of the vine. In Hardmode, Crimson and Hallowed vines qualify as spreading tiles in regard to biome spread. The Guide to Plant Fiber CordageDesktop, Console, and Mobile Versions allows the collection of Vine RopesDesktop, Console, and Mobile Versions from vines.

Vines will never drop the Vine object; this is an uncommon Man Eater drop.

Cactus[edit | edit source]

Cacti seen in a Desert
Main article: Cactus

Cactus grows naturally on Sand Blocks in the Desert biome, and persists even if the Desert becomes infected with Corruption, Crimson, or Hallow. They can be cut down with any axe and can be used to make cacti-themed weapons, armor, furniture, or just be placed and used as a building material. Occasionally, a Pink Prickly Pear will grow on top of a cactus. In 1.3.5.3Desktop VersionConsole Version and before, mining the Sand Block underneath a cactus will cause the entire plant to drop, but since 1.4.0.1Desktop Version this is no longer possible.

Bamboo[edit | edit source]

Bamboo seen in a Jungle
Main article: Bamboo

Bamboo grows naturally on Jungle grass that is submerged under water 2-5 blocks deep. It grows in straight columns at a very slow rate. Bamboo can be cut down with a pickaxe and can be used to make furniture.

Thorny bushes[edit | edit source]

Thorny bushes grow naturally in the Corruption, Crimson and Underground Jungle, and will damage the player on contact. There are currently three types of thorny bushes: Brown bushes from the Underground Jungle deal 25 damage; purple and red bushes from the Corruption and Crimson, respectively, deal 10 damage each. Thorny bushes are destroyed after contact with a weapon or tool. Invisible projectiles (Medusa Head, Life Drain etc.) don't destroy thorny bushes. Thorny bushes can grow six tiles in all directions. All NPCs and enemies are immune to them. They cannot be obtained as an item. The purple and red variants spread the Corruption/Crimson; the brown variant, however, does not spread Jungle grass. The growth of thorny bushes is blocked by solid objects and various other scenery.

Sunflowers[edit | edit source]

Main article: Sunflower

Sunflowers are surface plants that prevent the spread of the Corruption and Crimson on the blocks they are planted, and provide the Happy!Desktop, Console, and Mobile Versions buff to players within a 50-tile radius, mildly increasing movement speed and reducing monster spawn rate.

Life Fruit[edit | edit source]

Main article: Life Fruit

Life Fruits are consumables that permanently increase the player's maximum health by 5, up to a total of 500 (20 used). They are found in the Underground Jungle during Hardmode (Desktop, Console, and Mobile Versions) / after defeating at least one mechanical boss (Old-gen console version3DS Version). Life Fruits become more common once more mechanical bosses have been defeated. Life fruits will glow under the effect of spelunker potions.

Dye Plants[edit | edit source]

Main article: Dye

Dye Plants can be crafted into Dyes at a Dye Vat. They can be encountered in various biomes, and show on the map.

Plantera's Bulb[edit | edit source]

Main article: Plantera's Bulb

Plantera's Bulb is a pink plant in the Underground Jungle that will begin to appear after all 3 mechanical bosses and the Wall of Flesh have been defeated in a particular world. It will summon Plantera when destroyed. Though it cannot be broken by weapons or projectiles, caution should still be taken if these conditions are met to prevent any unwanted boss fights. One bulb will spawn about every six minutes (roughly half of an in-game day.)

Pumpkin[edit | edit source]

Main article: Pumpkin

Pumpkins grow naturally during Halloween and can be planted with Pumpkin Seeds sold by the Dryad. It can be placed as well as crafted into armor, furniture, walls, and Pumpkin Moon Medallions. There is also a chance to get the Magical Pumpkin Seed.
