Lightvines were a type of plant in the Matoran Universe that gave off light.
The Metru Nui variety was thin and gave a teal glow. The Karda Nui variety was thick and thorny and gave off a green glow. On Metru Nui, lightvines were seen in the Archives. In Karda Nui, they were wrapped around the Matoran villages to ward off Makuta. The Lightvine's bright light irritated the Makuta, which forced them to use other means of approach.
The lightvines in Karda Nui were destroyed when Mata Nui awoke.
