Where to Find Glowing Moss in Animal Crossing New Horizons

To find ACNH Glowing Moss, you have to visit different islands by sailing with Kapp’n on his Mystery Tours. For more info on him, check out our ACNH Kapp’n guide. Basically, you can pay him 1,000 Miles once a day, and he’ll take you to what I believe is a randomly-generated island. Once there, look for plants like the ones in the image above. They give off a faint glow at night and also emit little particles when you walk over them. Keep in mind that you can take them from the mystery island and plant them on yours. That way, you’ll always have a steady supply of Glowing Moss.
