Rotten Bark is a decayed wood block. It has a normal variant which acts as the wood block of Giant Hollow Logs and the outside layer block of Rotten Weedwood Trees, and can also be found in Sludge Plains Ruins. It also has a Spreading variant that generates from killed, naturally generating Spirit Trees.
If the Large Spirit Tree Face of a naturally generated Spirit Tree is killed, the tree will begin to die. The Spirit Tree Logs of the tree will slowly convert into Spreading Rotten Bark, which acts the same as regular Rotten Bark but spreads to the nearby logs of the tree.
When harvested, Rotten Bark has a chance to spawn a large Termite, which will proceed to attack the nearest player.
Rotten Bark has a compost process time of 10 minutes and a compost amount of 25. Visit the Compost page for more information regarding the composting mechanic.
