Horsetails are tall decorative living-fossil plants that look like reeds and lived from the Mid Jurassic period, to now. They are based off the real-life plant Equisetum. Unlike almost everything else in the mod, the Horsetail is not actually extinct. It stills lives in large numbers today.
Punching a Horsetail will not destroy it, unlike grass. Dinosaurs will not eat this plant.
Like most other things in the mod, it does not spawn naturally in the world .
The Horsetail is a small thin plant that is green. It has many small string-like branches all over it. It has a tall version that is a block taller and looks even more like a reed.
Horsetails are used for decoration. Because it is long and thin, it can be used to make a bamboo forest, or reeds.
The Horsetail can only be obtained by putting a Plant Fossil in an Analyzer. There is a rare chance that the Analyzer will give back Fossilized Horsetail Spores, which you then must put in a Culture Vat. Unless the Culture Vat fails and spawns a Failure Plant, it will then turn the Fossilized Seeds into normal Horsetail Spores which can be planted.
