The latest patch for Terraria added in a bunch of new plants (and their seeds) for use in alchemy.

I'd like to make a sustainable farm for these new plants, but I'm having trouble determining when the plants are in bloom.

What are the conditions underwhich the new plants will "bloom", and produce seeds on harvest? An ideal answer would have a picture of each plant in bloom contrasted with a picture of a plant not in bloom.

  • Daybloom Grown Daybloom Blooming Daybloom Daybloom blooms when it's day time.
  • Moonglow Grown Moonglow Blooming Moonglow Moonglow blooms when it's night time.
  • Blinkroot Grown Blinkroot Blooming Blinkroot Blinkroot blooms (and stops blooming) at random.
  • Deathweed Grown Deathweed Blooming Deathweed Deathweed blooms only during Blood Moons or a full moon.
  • Waterleaf Grown Waterleaf Blooming Waterleaf Waterleaf blooms when it's raining.
  • Fireblossom Grown Fireblossom Blooming Fireblossom Fireblossom blooms during sunset. (3:45 PM - 7:30 PM in-game time)
  • Shiverthorn Grown Shiverthorn Blooming Shiverthorn Shiverthorn just takes time, and doesn't stop blooming once it does.

When blooming, the plants also emit light and/or particle effects.

  • That looks perfect. May I ask where you got the images? Commented Jun 26, 2011 at 1:50

    @RavenDreamer There's a tool called XNB Exporter that can convert the Terraria .xnb sprites to PNG images. Extracting the plants from the sprites was trivial, as their animation consists purely of particle effects.

  • Well, neat. I haven't putzed around with Terraria's files, so I don't know what all is or isn't packed away in JARs or what have you. Commented Jun 26, 2011 at 2:25
