Terraria can be a confusing game for first-timers, especially if they just got into Hard Mode. Learning the game’s basic mechanics is important to beating the game, and one huge mechanic to learn is how the bosses work. You might find a boss that you didn’t think was there and it one-shots you, or you can be randomly invaded by them unexpectedly.
Plantera’s Bulbs aren’t spawning in your world because you either haven’t given them enough time to spawn, or your seed doesn’t allow for them to be spawned. The second one has happened and there is really not much you can do about it except wait and hope for the best that it does spawn.
There are a few things you need to do before the Bulbs will start spawning in, and after you complete those things, the Jungle becomes a giant deathtrap with more dangerous enemies. Just be sure that you are ready to transform the Jungle into a giant death hole before defeating the last Mechanical boss.
Why aren’t Plantera Bulbs spawning?
There are 2 reasons for Plantera Bulbs not spawning. The first reason is that you haven’t waited enough time for them to spawn in. It takes about 1 in-game day for a Bulb to spawn and it is usually in a random spot in the Jungle. If you can’t find it, then consider looking at a seed map generator online.
The second reason is that no bulbs have spawned in your world. It has happened before and it can be extremely annoying, but give the game enough time, one might spawn eventually. It just takes a lot of waiting. Just be patient and consider completing other objectives to keep your mind off of it. Come back later and there might be one sitting in the Jungle somewhere.
When do Plantera Bulbs start spawning?
Plantera’s Bulb will start spawning for you after you defeat all three Mechanical bosses once you reach Hard Mode. This isn’t an easy task, especially if you are playing on Expert or Master mode, so if you are, good luck. Once they are defeated, the Jungle will start changing and you’ll be able to find the Bulbs in random areas.
Here are the 3 Mechanical Bosses you need to defeat:
1. The Destroyer
The Destroyer is essentially a more difficult version of the Eater of Worlds. Like the Eater of Worlds, it is a very large worm. Although it appears to be similarly made up of many segments, individual segments cannot die, and will not split apart into multiple entities.
2. The Twins
The Twins is essentially a more difficult version of the Eye of Cthulhu. The Twins are two separate flying entities, Retinazer and Spazmatism, connected by a tendril, each with its own attack pattern and life count. Both must be killed in order to defeat the boss.
3. Skeletron Prime
Skeletron Prime is essentially a more difficult version of Skeletron. It consists of a head and four limbs, but, similarly to Skeletron, only the head needs to be defeated to defeat the boss. The different limbs also have different parts to them like lasers and saw blades.
