Magic Moss is a magical moss that Rose Quartz planted and cultivated via her phytokinetic abilities. It first appears in the episode "Lars and the Cool Kids". The moss is green before blooming. The flowers are a rosy pink color with five light pink petals circling a central, hot-pink gem.
Magic Spike Vines
Magic Spike Vines can be seen growing around Rose's Fountain in "An Indirect Kiss". Pearl implies that their current state is a result of Rose's absence, as she is no longer there to guide them. Steven and Amethyst are later attacked by the Magic Spike Vines, only to be saved when Pearl and Garnet unclogged the fountain, restoring the flow of Rose's tears, and causing the plants to cease their attack.
In "Everything's Fine", several Topiary Stevens were accidentally created when Steven applied his saliva to a withering plant in Peridot's greenhouse at Little Homeschool. They ran around saying "Steven's here to help!", but seemed to do little else. They were voiced by Zach Callison.
Sentient Pumpkin, Gourd, and Squash
- The centers of the flowers are similar to rose quartz gems.
- In the episode "Keep Beach City Weird", Ronaldo Fryman states that according to his blog, the moss is not native to this region or dimension.
- Considering its history is tied to Rose Quartz, this is not an unrealistic possibility.
- Ronaldo reveals that he is allergic to the blooms in Keep Beach City Weird: You Can't Hide the Truth!!!.
- The moss is likely based on Portulaca, a genus of flowering plants that are more commonly known as purslanes, moss roses, or rose moss. They are not actually mosses or roses, but are distant relatives of roses, belonging to a different branch of the same clade.
