Axolotl: Those non-hostile aquatic creatures reproduce in completely dark underground water.

Glow squid: These organisms spawn in utter darkness in underground water sources, however, their dazzling glow gives them away.

Azalea Bushes: Azalea Bushes that bloom is also known as Flowering Azalea Bushes. Bonemeal is used to turn them into Azalea Trees.


Cave Vines/Glow Berries: Cave Vines extend down from the ceiling and may produce Glow Berries, which can be utilized as food or a source of light.

Dropleaf is a plant that grows on clay or in water. Bonemeal can help them grow taller.

Glow Lichen is a cave-dwelling low-light source. Shears can be used to harvest them.

Moss Carpet/Moss Blocks are decorative blocks. Moss Carpet is made up of Moss Blocks.


Hanging Roots/Rooted Dirt: Decorative blocks are found naturally in the Lush Caves biome. When bonemeal is applied to Rooted Dirt, it forms Hanging Roots.
