A Light Bulb is a Food item obtained by harvesting a Light Flower or as a drop from a Slurper or Big Tentacle.

While technically a Food item (restoring 1 Health each), Light Bulbs are mainly used for other purposes. They can be used to craft the Lantern or as fuel for Miner Hats and Lanterns (extending durability by 20% per Light Bulb).

Light Bulbs can be placed on the ground to be used as a Light source, and will prevent an attack from Charlie.

Since Light Flowers regrow every 3 days, Light Bulbs are fully renewable, meaning an unlimited supply of fuel for Lanterns and Miner Hats.

  • Light Bulb is a play on words, in regards to a "light bulb" being the well-known invention popularized by Thomas Edison and "bulb" being the part of a plant where food is stored.
