This article is about the Bloodvine. You may be looking for the Creepvine, or the Bloodroot.

Bloodvine is a flora species that dominates the Blood Kelp Zone. An oily substance called Blood Oil can be harvested from their stems.

Appearance

The Bloodvine is very tall and kelp-like, emitting a bright bioluminescent white glow. It grows on the seabed, attached to an extensive root system. The central stalk or stipe is surrounded by bare kelp blades but the top-most ones have many smaller protrusions. At its very top, there is a small mouth-like opening.

Blood Oil can be found on the ground or nearby its stems, which can be used for farming to grow Bloodvines in an Exterior Growbed or double-stacked Alien Containments.

Data Bank Entry

Bloodvine

This species of kelp grows in sparse copses, deep on the ocean floor, and provides shelter for an array of distinct fauna and megafauna.

Survival at these depths is challenging, and the lifeforms which make their homes here have developed unusual coping mechanisms, including a bleaching of skin pigment, dependency on naturally occurring metals and oils to adjust to temperature and pressure, and in some cases even electrical defense mechanisms.

The vibrant red oils which seep from the bloodvine coagulate into semi-hard pustules, which frequently fall loose and form a vital foodstuff for the local ecosystem, or are otherwise reabsorbed into the ground over time.
