The Blinkroot appears as a cluster of grey and yellow fungus. It grows naturally on Dirt and Mud Blocks, typically in caverns Underground but occasionally on the surface. Blinkroot can be cut with virtually any weapons or tool. It can also be planted in Clay Pots with Blinkroot Seeds. Harvesting it while it is blooming will drop 1-3 Blinkroot Seeds.


  • While blooming, the Blinkroot emits a pulsing light. This can make underground caves easier to find.
  • Blinkroot grows faster than any other Plant.
  • If you plant a number of Blinkroot Seeds next to each other, the growing/blooming time is considerably increased.
  • Blinkroot often serves as a will-o-wisp, as its slightly-yellow glow makes normal stone look like gold ore making it very annoying.
