Bloodroots are a non-hazardous type of life form belonging to the flora category, and dominate the Blood Kelp Caves. They frequently feature Blood Oil pustules, which are a harvestable raw material. Despite having a Data Bank Entry image, currently the Bloodroot can't be scanned.

Appearance Edit

Bloodroot are large root-like plants, which emit a greenish-white bioluminescent glow. They stretch from one wall to another, or from the cave ceiling to its bottom. Each root is made up of multiple smaller roots intertwining each other.

Many Bloodroot seemingly grow out blood oil pustules from its thick stem.

Data Bank EntryEdit

Blood Cave Root

These root systems generally extend from one cave wall to another.

  1. Coiled Root System:
    Where this root system breaks through into open water its tendrils coil around one another for enhanced structural integrity.
  2. Cave Wall Rooting:
    Where the root meets the cave wall it penetrates into the rock and continues to grow, alebeit at a slower rate.

Both bloodroots and bloodvines produce blood oil pustules, confirming that they are in fact one and the same flora species. The majority of the root system thrives within the rock itself, occasionally breaking into open water to reach untapped mineral resources, or generating vines which feed on nutrients in the open waters.
