|“||In the glens of the Morgai on the other side of the valley low scrubby trees lurked and clung, coarse grey grass-tussocks fought with the stones, and withered mosses crawled on them; and everywhere great writhing, tangled brambles sprawled.||”|
–The Land of Shadow, The Return of the King
Withered moss is a plant sometimes found on the surface of the Mordor biome. It grows in patches all over the Land of Shadow, on Mordor Rock, Dirt, and Gravel. When on Mordor Rock, it alters the side-texture of the block, like snow does to grass and stone, giving the appearance of moss draping over the side.
Withered moss has an appearance of a flat, dead plant, killed by the darkness, poisonous fumes, and lack of rain brought on by Mount Doom.
Withered Moss drops nothing when broken with the player's fist, but can be harvested properly with shears. From there, it can be used as decoration, though again, it can only be placed on Mordor Rock, Dirt, and Gravel. It can also be used as low-quality fuel in a forge.
