Cooper's Reed (Cattail)
Cooper's reeds are propagated by transplanting cattail roots on a terrain block near a water source. When planted on soil or muddy gravel block using Shift + right mouse button, the root will generate a plant. The plant will regrow cattail tops over time. It should be noted that farming Cooper's reeds will not provide additional roots to increase the number of plants available, but all roots must be harvested from existing plants.
Types of Reeds
Cooper's Reeds have two drops cattail tops and cattail roots. To harvest the reeds, players can break plants with an empty hand, although this destroys the roots. Using a knife allows players to harvest the top of the plant and preserve the roots. Using a knife on a plant after harvesting the tops will harvest the cattail root.
Catttail tops can be used to craft hand baskets or hunter's backpacks to increase player inventory, as well as containers that can be placed and used as item storage. Cattail tops are also used to craft rope which can be sold to traders, poultices for healing, and skeps.
