The Arctic Kelp is a subspecies of the Creepvine. It will be the primary flora of the Arctic Kelp Forest, one of the upcoming biomes in Subnautica: Below Zero.


The species possesses a long yellow stalk that anchors it to the seabed. From the stalk many long, wavy leaves grow and share the yellow colouration of the stalk. Its seed pods emit a constant bioluminescent pink glow.


The species appears to function identically to the Creepvine, covering vast areas of seabed and forming forests which provide shelter to smaller creatures and hunting grounds for predators.
