The Eye Stalk is a Flora species found scattered throughout a few of the deeper biomes, as well as the Kelp Forest Caves.  It is mostly decorational for most of the game, being used in only one crafting recipe.  It can be harvested for Eye Stalk Seeds by using the knife.


The Eye Stalk consists of twisted purple stems, with a few darker purple stripes, ending with yellow bioluminescent bulbs resembling eyes. The Bulbs produce a large amount of light, and are the primary source of light in the Deep Sparse Reef.

It is crooked and has many yellow bioluminescent bulbs protruding from its multiple purple stems. The stems are curved in a very sharp way, with no round corners at all.

A cave-dwelling tuber dotted with luminescent, photosensitive 'eyes'. These eyes may in some way direct the twisted growth of the stems themselves, possibly in reaction to other light sources, proximity of cave walls, or other environmental conditions.
