Seeds are items that drop occasionally when digging up defensive flora. When planted, they grow into the flora of that seed type. Digging up the plants gives the same Research Samples, Research Items and seeds that naturally-occurring flora gives.
"Mutant Seeds" are harmless versions of offensive flora. These seeds can be planted, but cannot be used for Bytes in a Research Chamber. These seeds, along with the plants they germinate, have their glowing, red parts replaced by glowing, blue parts, allowing players to easily distinguish between them and their non-mutated counterparts.
Types of Seeds
There are two kinds of seeds, defensive flora seeds and mutant offensive flora seeds. The Mutant seeds mutate the offensive flora to just be decorative, removing the plants' ability to harm the player.
Defensive Flora Seeds:
Mutant Offensive Flora Seeds:
- Hissbine ( Normal/ Vibrant/ Dull)
- Cataplant (Noxious/Volatile)
- Attactus (Spiny/Volatile)
- Spewflower (Noxious/Elegant)
To use a Seed the player must place them on the ground then hold the Use key (default F on PC/ on XBox/ on PS4) to activate the seed, allowing it to grow after a short time. The player then may dig up the plant, with a chance to receive more seeds.
