Natural generation[]

Muddy mangrove roots naturally generate in mangrove swamps where mud blocks intersect with normal mangrove roots at the bottom of mangrove trees.

Post generation[]

When a mangrove propagule grows into a tree, if the tree roots intersect with nearby mud blocks, those mud blocks are converted into muddy mangrove roots.
