- This page is about Ethereal Bloom added by Thaumcraft 4. For other uses, see Ethereal Bloom.
The Ethereal Bloom is a plant added by Thaumcraft 4. It is used to stave away Tainted growths and creatures within an 8 block radius of itself. While it cannot remove Tainted Lands biomes, it can destroy Magical Forest biomes.
Shimmerleaf is often overshadowed by its mystical neighbor the Silverwood tree, but it has magical properties of its own.
Like the Silverwood, Shimmerleaf flowers have purifying properties that lie dormant. You have found a way to awaken these properties and turn it into an Ethereal Bloom.
Ethereal blooms slowly, but surely, restores land corrupted by mystical means to its former glory - this includes the blight known as Taint. While it cannot combat Taint directly, few tainted growths can survive outside their native environment for long and tend to die back.
The flower only purifies the land bathed in its light out to a range of about 8 blocks.
