There are several distinct habitats in the Avatar World, each suitable for different species and variations of plants.

Foggy SwampEdit

Due to its humid air, the Foggy Swamp is home to a large number of plants, which are all densely packed into the area together with the other organisms that live there.


Due to the Northern and Southern Water Tribe's arctic climate and low temperatures, flora in these parts can only grow underwater, excluding the plants around the warm center of the Spirit Oasis.

Si Wong DesertEdit

The Si Wong Desert holds the driest, hottest climate of the world. The desert's ecosystem primarily consists of cacti in terms of flora.
