"I got a Venus' flower basket! Why was she picking flowers here?" —New Horizons

The Venus Flower Basket is a benthic creature, first appearing in New Horizons. It appears all day, but most frequently between 9pm and 4am.

Donation to the museum[]

In New Horizons[]

Upon donation or selecting "Tell me more about this!", Blathers the curator will say:

"The Venus' flower basket looks like an otherworldly creature one would find on an alien planet. But it is instead a remarkable sea sponge found in the deepest parts of the ocean. Its body is composed of silica and looks like a sculpture or, perhaps, a vase made of glassy mesh. I daresay Venus' flower basket is one of nature's most impressive works of art."

Once donated Venus' flower basket will appear in the Deep Sea tank.
