Plant material is a food that can be obtained by digging into an already-open set of dry soil containing it or by finding patches of it that spawn with changes from Winter to Spring or Spring to Summer. All above-ground plant material not carried by an ant will disappear immediately in Autumn and Winter.


Currently, plant material appears to be a kneaded, somewhat-round piece of green dough that festers with a beneficial fungus. The seams of the kneaded piece are darker and shadowed.

Previously, plant material used to appear as a simple ellipsoid circle of lime green bordered by darker lime green. It did not look detailed, and the individual pixels were visible to players.


  • The colloquial name for the green food is "plant material."
  • Plant material was previously just called "food" and could be obtained by killing mobs.
