Asphodelus Bulb

Overview

Like all flowers in Deepworld, the Asphodelus has a meaning, represented by it's bulb shape. Can you guess it? There is a cross on the bulb because Asphodelus means "My regrets follow you to the grave". Bulbs are found in the Organic section of player inventory.

How to Obtain

Like all bulbs, this bulb is obtainable only as loot from a treasure chest. Once looted, it can then be traded or sold.

Uses

Bulbs are used to grow flowers. Flowers can only be grown in purified temperate worlds. To grow a flower, first choose a spot where there is unobstructed sky above -- rain must be able to reach the bulb all the way from the very top of the sky. Then place the bulb against either earth background or a crafted backdrop block of any kind.

Flowers have several stages of growth. When a flower is fully matured, the bulb below will transform into a block of compost. You can then mine both the compost and the flower. To display a flower, place it directly above either a block of compost or a flower pot. Flowers can be placed this way in any world, regardless of biome type or purity level.

To place a bulb without having it grow into a flower, or to preserve an early stage of flower growth, put a solid block somewhere in the sky directly above it to prevent rain from reaching it.
