Writhing Weed is a non-hazardous type of life form belonging to the flora category.

It is mostly found in the Grassy Plateaus and Safe Shallows. It has no use in the game and is purely cosmetic.

The player can cut it with a knife to obtain Writhing Weed Seeds.


Writhing Weed seems to be a cluster of small, purple, neon green tipped tentacles, capable of emitting bright bioluminescent glows.

Data Bank EntryEdit

Slanted Tentacles

Well-adapted to both shallow waters and cave systems, this plant lives in symbiosis with a coral species which forms around the base of the stems.



  • The Writhing Weed was originally called the Purple Tentacle.
