A player using the Staff of Regrowth to grow grass on dirt.
A player using the Staff of regrowth to increase seed yield.

The Staff of Regrowth is a tool that can be found in Ivy Chests as well as Jungle(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) and Bramble Crates(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions). Unlike other tools, it does not destroy most vegetation when swung, unless the tile is directly targeted. It also increases the yield of herbs and their seeds when harvesting them and allows obtaining seeds from mature but non-blooming herbs, which is impossible with other tools. In addition, using the Staff of Regrowth on Dirt Blocks will plant grass, without the need for Grass Seeds.

Its best modifier is Light for harvesting purposes and Legendary for combat purposes.

  • The Staff of Regrowth will not destroy the following tiles when hitting them, unless it is used on them directly:[1]
  • Normally, destroying a herb yields the herb item and 1–3 of its seeds. The Staff of Regrowth increases this yield to 1–2 of the herb item and 1–5 of its seeds.[2]
  • Herbs that are planted in a Clay Pot or Planter Box(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) and are not blooming cannot be harvested whatsoever with the Staff of Regrowth. This is likely to prevent accidental harvesting of non-mature herbs.
  • Despite being found in the Jungle, the Staff of Regrowth does not grow Jungle Grass on Mud Blocks.
  • If grass is grown near lava, it will revert to dirt after a few moments.
  • Using the Staff of Regrowth to collect Glowing Mushrooms will not yield extra Glowing Mushrooms nor Mushroom Grass Seeds.
  • Grass placed below, and moss placed above 0 depth will not naturally spread and will not grow tall grass or fuzz.


  • The Staff (or Axe(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions)) of Regrowth is the tool of choice to increase herb yields, especially from farming.
    • When harvesting plants from Clay Pots and Planter Boxes, it will only collect blooming herbs at remarkable speed, and leave the other variants unaffected. This guarantees a yield of seeds and also removes the danger of wasting a plant by accident (i.e. when using a pickaxe).
    • Over blocks, however, the Staff of Regrowth can force the full-grown versions to drop seeds. This is useful to get seeds for plants that bloom rarely, e.g. the Deathweed.
  • The Staff of Regrowth may grow grass on any Dirt Block, no matter how deep it is. Unfortunately, grass has limited function underground, as in the Underground layer and below, grass will not grow weeds or Dayblooms, and Acorns will not mature.
  • The Staff of Regrowth functions well as a trail marker in the Underground layer, as grass stands out well in the environment of grays and browns.
  • The Staff of Regrowth can be used to indirectly spread Hallowed grass, Corrupt grass, or Crimson grass underground by growing grass near Pearlstone, Ebonstone, or Crimstone respectively.
  • The Staff of Regrowth is useful for placement of Sunflowers in arenas, homes, etc. Sunflowers can be placed anywhere with just two grass-covered dirt blocks, and enough vertical space.
  • The rate at which grass, and moss is created with the Staff of Regrowth is increased by the Brick Layer.


  • It is the only staff in the game that is classified as a melee item.
