Green moss is a type of moss found on Dread Mountain. It grows on the banks of streams, and can be used for healing wounds.[1]


Secrets of Deltora[]

Doran mentioned green moss in his traveller's guide, Secrets of Deltora, describing its healing powers to be of use to a traveller wishing to visit Dread Mountain.[2]

Dread Mountain[]

Prin was told about green moss from her mother and the other adult Kin. When Lief, Barda, and Jasmine were attacked by a Vraal, she scared it off by clogging its eyes and ears with the dead, purple moss. She also gathered living green moss to tend to the companion's injuries. [1]

Isle of the Dead[]

While on Dread Mountain, Lief used green moss to heal his injuries from the encounter with the Masked Ones and from helping Honora destroy the Sister of the North.[3]


Green moss has the ability to cauterize and mend minor wounds and burns within a day or two. When it dies, the moss turns purple and burns the skin on contact. Green moss can be used to heal the burns caused by purple moss.
