What Are The Differences Between Flora And Terra’s Powers In Fate: The Winx Saga?

Fate: The Winx Saga displays quite the rolodex of Earth Fairies throughout the series, but subtle differences separate the show’s two most focal ones: Flora and Terra. They both share a general ability to manipulate earthly terrain in numerous ways. Every Earth Fairy in the show is differentiated in small but noticeable ways.

Fate: The Winx Saga does a lot to individualize the characters through personality, academics, and sexual orientation. A less noticeable contrast among the cousins is the scope and strengths of their magic. There are instances throughout season 2 that shed some light on what the pair’s capabilities are.


Both Terra and Flora seem to possess the power of chlorokinesis, the ability to create and manipulate both new and pre-existing plant life. This looks to be a base-level power of most Earth Fairies in The Winx Saga‘s Alfea. The applications for such power run the gamut from battle tactics to home decoration. Neither of the two Earth Fairies can phase through terrain in the same way that Sam, Terra’s brother, is able. They can, however, enhance and stunt the growth of plants in their general vicinity.

Season 2 Of Fate: The Winx Saga Shows How Flora And Terra’s Powers Differ

In episode 5 of the season, Terra explores what she calls “mineral magic” by turning a large rock into a diamond during the magic circle the girls used to try and restore Musa’s powers. Flora’s abilities seem to be centered on agriculture exclusively, with no signs of control in any other category of earth manipulation. Flora can most often be seen sprouting flowers atop naturally grown trees and vines around campus.

While searching for the grave of Headmistress Dowling, Terra can sense abnormalities below the ground and bring them to the surface, an ability she uses to find the Resurrection Plant. Flora is unable to sense the plant and does not assist in unearthing it. Flora ends up replenishing the dying plant, which releases Farah Dowling’s spirit in The Winx Saga. Terra may have been able to do the same, but when she was using her magic to excavate it, the plant shows no signs of absorption.

Though they come from the same family of Earth Fairies, Flora and Terra have very specific power sets that made each of them a valuable member of the Winx suite team. Terra backs up her abilities with science – she is an exceptional botanist. Flora, on the other hand, relies on instinct. With her powers drained by the Scrapers of the Realm of Darkness, Flora may need to rely on the scientific side of botany with Terra as her guide in the next chapter of Fate: The Winx Saga.
