How to get shiny moss and vines in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
There are two ways to get glowing moss and vines in New Horizons, and one depends on whether you’ve purchased the Happy Home Paradise DLC.
Anyone, however, has the chance to find both glowing moss and vines by taking Kapp’n boat tours. Every once in a while, Kapp’n will take you to an island where these special types of fauna grow and you can collect both.
Remember, the island Kapp’n takes you to is selected at random and you can only take one boat tour per day, so you may have to wait a while until you can visit this island.
If you purchased the Happy Home Paradise DLC, you can find glowing moss and vines growing on the hills behind the Paradise planning office.
The Animal Crossing 2.0 and Happy Home Paradise update is here! We can help you with the new additions, including where to find Brewster, Gyroids, new villagers, ordinances, new fences, storage shed, new hairstyles, Froggy Chair, group stretches, and Kapp’n boat tours. Cooking can now be unlocked, so you need to know how to make flour and sugar, as well as how to grow carrots, potatoes and tomatoes. In the meantime, if you’re new to Animal Crossing, our New Horizons tips can help you with the basics. From the beginning, there are fish and insects to catch, flowers and fruits to grow. A long-term goal is to increase your Happy Home Academy score. Finally, you need tools like the new ladder and pole to fully explore.
