How to Find and Use Moss in Stardew Valley

Not the easiest thing to find.

Moss in Stardew Valley is one of the many resources that you can find in several regions. While this resource is pretty useful in certain use cases, finding it could be a challenge. Thankfully, we have you covered, and finding moss won’t be an issue if you have jumped in after the 1.6 update.

Where to Find Moss in Stardew Valley

Moss in Stardew Valley grows on trees, but unlike several other resources, they’re pretty rare to spot. If you’re looking for it, make sure to scan the Cindersap Mountains, Forests, and Pelican Town. Although they can grow on the trees, I found them pretty hard to come by.

I believe it took some time for the game to spawn moss after update 1.6 went live. The most reliable method is to look for the really old and large trees, as they’re the likeliest ones to have moss on them.

How to Get Moss in Stardew Valley

Getting moss is similar to harvesting anything that grows on trees – you have to chop the tree. However, if there’s moss on it, it will fall before the tree has been chopped down entirely. Hence, I believe you should let the tree live, given how rare it can be to find moss in the first place.

How to Use Moss in Stardew Valley

Like any other resource, Moss in Stardew Valley is required in plenty of different recipes. For example, upgrading the Worm Bin to a Deluxe version will require 30 moss, which is incredibly beneficial for you to catch more fish.

Moss isn’t only used in crafting resources, as you can also use it to cook Moss Soup. This soup helps to restore health and energy, which can be extremely beneficial throughout your day-to-day activities. However, it’s best to spare the resource for crafting purposes until you have enough.

Make sure to go through the full 1.6 update patch notes to understand all the changes and new additions that you can now enjoy.
