Cave Lichen is a harvestable fungus found in the Ruins, commonly in the Wilds and occasionally Village Biomes. A small number can also be found in the Labyrinth near the Ancient Guardian. When harvested, it yields 1 Lichen and then takes 3-5 days to become harvestable again. It does not grow during Winter.
Cave Lichen cannot be relocated. They are flammable and will leave behind 1 Ashes when burned.
- Lichen counts as a vegetable and can easily be collected in large quantities facilitating certain Crock Pot recipes, due to the abundance of Cave Lichen in the Ruins.
