Hollow Knight Wiki

The Moss Grotto is the very first area in Hollow Knight: Silksong. It is located at the very bottom of Pharloom after the cinematic intro where Hornet breaks the cage she was trapped in and subsequently the bridge she was atop. The area is covered in vivid lime-green moss and plants with pools of clear water. Its inhabitants mostly consist of moss-themed enemies.
