Not to be confused with Nightglow, the magic weapon.

Moonglow is a type of Herb which appears as a bent stalk with a drooping blue-white flower. It grows on Jungle grass (surface Jungle and Underground Jungle) and can be cut with virtually any weapon or tool. It can be planted in Clay Pots, Planter Boxes, and on top of Jungle grass using Moonglow Seeds.

Moonglow only blooms at night, emitting its small pearls of blue-white light, and while doing so, can be cut to drop 1-3 seeds of the herb. The Staff of Regrowth can be used to increase the amount of seeds dropped when cut.

Both Moonglow and their respective seeds have a chance to be obtained from the Herb Bag.
