Glowing moss and vine DIY recipe list — Animal Crossing: New Horizons guide


Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ big 2.0 update added some new crafting material: vines and glowing moss. These materials aren’t found natively on your island and there’s tons of DIYs that use them. Our Animal Crossing: New Horizons vine and glowing moss guide will explain where to find vines and glowing moss and where to find DIY recipes that use these materials.


Where to find vines and glowing moss

Vines and glowing moss can only be found on specific Kapp’n boat tours. Some islands will be filled with the mysterious flora, and you can harvest it and it all back with you. Vines and glowing moss do not grow natively on your island, so you’ll need to get lucky with a Kapp’n island in order to find it, unless you have the game’s DLC.

If you have the Happy Home Paradise DLC, glowing moss and vines will spawn towards the back of the hub island, near the ruins. You can freely harvest these to bring home and use in DIYs and they do seem to regrow, based on our own testing.
