Creepvine is a flora species that grows exclusively within Kelp Forests. By knifing them, the player can acquire Creepvine Samples. The player can also collect Creepvine Seed Clusters from Creepvines.
Creepvines are towering, green, kelp-like plants that grow from the seabed. Some are so tall they reach the water's surface.
The central stipe is surrounded by smaller kelp blades. These blades increase in size and density the closer they are to the surface.
Some Creepvines grow out Creepvine Seed Clusters about halfway up the stalk, which emit a yellow bioluminescent glow.
While planted, the seed clusters of the flora produce large Creepvines that have seeds, while the samples become long, thin, seedless Creepvines, upon reaching adulthood.
Data Bank Entry
A kelp species concentrated in large forests, in shallow, sandy waters. Loose roots anchor the plant to the sea floor, from where it grows steadily toward the surface in pursuit of sunlight.
The stem is fibrous and rich in iron, making it both a viable base material for fabrication of textiles, as well as a basic foodstuff.
