Cave Moss ingame

Cave Moss is a plant that generates in groups underground hanging off the ceilings of Caverns and Lake Caverns.

Placement Edit

Cave Moss can only be placed on the underside of Betweenstone, Limestone, and Pitstone, as well as directly below itself. Breaking a higher part of a Cave Moss growth will break all parts below it as well.

Particles Edit

Cave Moss will occasionally drip water particles.

Collection Edit

Cave Moss must be harvested with Syrmorite Shears to be collected. When harvested with a Sickle, it instead drops a Cave Moss Clump, which can then be ground into Ground Cave Moss.

Growth Edit

Cave Moss that has been placed directly by the player grows down from blocks like Vines.

Compostability Edit

Cave Moss has a compost process time of 7 minutes and 30 seconds and a compost amount of 6. Visit the Compost page for more information regarding the composting mechanic.

Igniting Edit

Cave Moss can be used to create fire by holding right-click on either its placed or dropped form with an Octine Ingot. Cave Moss that is adjacent to or on a Block of Octine will also catch fire, although this fire will not spread to further Cave Moss blocks.
