Astroneer Wiki

Hello all editors and users of the Astroneer Wiki! We are in the process of updating and switching over to use the new Fandom Desktop skin on the wiki. There will be many changes over the coming days, but the main goal is to keep the wiki feeling the same, as much as we can! If you notice any issues once the swap is made, please post them to the Admin Noticeboard so we can address it right away. We are also going to be completing the update to the Astroneer Wiki:Style guide, so there is a more up to date guide on how to style the wiki going forward.

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:

Other Seeds:


To use a Seed the player must place them on the ground then hold the Use key (default F on PC/Xbox One - Y Button on XBox/PS4 - Triangle 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.
