Nettles ingame

Nettles are a dangerous plant that generates in Swamplands, Coarse Islands, and Marsh biomes. There are two variations - A normal Nettle and a Flowered Nettle.

Flowering Edit

Nettles naturally go through cycles of flowering, blooming into Flowered Nettles over time and eventually withering back into regular Nettles.

Stinging Edit

A player or non-Betweenlands mob will take 1 damage (Half Heart) every 0.5 seconds upon being in direct contact with a Nettle or Flowered Nettle. This damage can be reduced by Armor or entirely negated with a Toughskin Elixir.

Betweenlands mobs do not take damage from Nettles or Flowered Nettles.

Collection Edit

Nettles and Flowered Nettles must be harvested with Syrmorite Shears to be collected. When harvested with a Sickle, they instead drop a Nettle Leaf, which can then be ground into Ground Nettle.

Growing Edit

Nettles and Flowered Nettles can be grown by placing them on top of composted Dug Swamp Dirt, Dug Swamp Grass, Dug Purified Swamp Dirt, or Dug Purified Swamp Grass. They will then grow to adjacent plant-supporting blocks.

Compostability Edit

Nettles have a compost process time of 6 minutes and 40 seconds and a compost amount of 5. Flowered Nettles have 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.

Events Edit

Placed Nettles and Flowered Nettles will take on an alternative texture during the Winter seasonal event.
