This article is about the current version of DF.
Note that some content may still need to be updated.

For covering that appears on old structures, see moss.
Cave moss is the teal one.

Cave moss is an underground floor-covering plant (or maybe fungus), growing natively in the second cavern layer. As it is functionally a grass, grazers may feed on it.

As with the other underground grasses, cave moss only appears after a cavern containing it has been discovered. After that has happened, it may spread on any below ground soil surface or on a muddied stone surface that has not been smoothed. The amount of mud on the surface does not affect the distribution or growth rate of subterranean plants [1].

While it might appear various types of fungi grows from the cave moss, this is really just that they too grow on the same muddy floor.

Beautifully lit cave moss.
