Moss ingame

Moss is a thin plant block that generates in patches in Swamplands and Patchy Islands biomes, as well as underground in Caverns and on Idol Head Statues.

Coloration Edit

Moss takes on different foliage colors depending on what biome it is located in.

Growth and Decay Edit

Moss naturally goes through cycles of growth, spreading to nearby blocks slowly over time and eventually dying out.

Collection Edit

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

Compostability Edit

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

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

Events Edit

Placed Moss will take on alternative textures during the Spook and Winter seasonal events.
