Bull Kelp is a Plant exclusive to Don't Starve Together, introduced in Return of Them. It grows naturally on the Coastal Ocean, but can also be found stranded in the Rocky Beach Biome on the Lunar Island and on Hermit Island.

Bull Kelp can be picked to obtain Kelp Fronds. It then takes 3 full Days to regrow. When picked on the beach, it additionally yields a Bull Kelp Stalk. They are not affected by Winter cold.

Bull Kelp can be pushed towards the mainland with a boat to pick it from any coast without first sailing out. Picking it like that will yield the same results as picking it while on a boat, it does not count as beached.

Bull Kelp StalkEdit

Wilson Portrait
I can plant it in deep water.


Willow Portrait
Haha! This thing's great.


Wolfgang Portrait
Is not very good weapon, I think.


Wendy Portrait
It's like a very slimy whip.

I suppose this is why it's referred to as "bullwhip" kelp.


Woodie Portrait
Seems a bit cruel, doesn't it?


Waxwell Portrait
For keeping the peasantry in line.


Wigfrid Portrait
I'll turn the sea's dark forces against it!

Perhaps it'll grow if I plant it.

We plucked this whip from the side of the ship.


Wurt Portrait
Plant more water snacks!


Walter Portrait
I could plant this back in the ocean.


The Bull Kelp Stalk is obtained by picking a beached Bull Kelp plant. It can both be planted in the Ocean to create a new Bull Kelp plant and be deployed as a Weapon. It is used as a whip and has the same damage value and extended melee range as the Tail o' Three Cats.

As the Bull Kelp Stalk not only has a limited durability, but also perishes slowly over time and can be stacked in the Inventory. Bull Kelp Stalks can also be used as a mediocre Fuel material for Fire.

Each attack reduce the freshness by a random amount between 2 to 4%. When Bull Kelp Stalk freshness is below 50% each attack has 10% chance to destroy Bull Kelp Stalk.
