Spotted Reeds are small flora species found in shallow biomes, though sparsely. They are found in the Safe Shallows and Mountains biome. They can be seen on Reefbacks since the Bones Update. Strangely, the Spotted Reeds found on Reefbacks can be picked up and Spotted Reeds found growing on the sea floor cannot be picked up.
Spotted Reeds come in groups consisting of several broad, pointed blades of grass varying in size. The blades are light green in color on the edge which gradually turns brown toward its center and base, with white dots speckled along a line in the middle of each blade.
