This article is about seeds that can be planted. For the ammunition fired from a Blowpipe, see Seed. For the feature, see World Seed.

Seeds are used to grow trees, grass, and herbs that can provide the player with crafting ingredients, or in the case of grass, for the creation or expansion of biomes. Most seed types have specific conditions they require in order to sprout. Seeds can also be planted on Clay Pots or in any Planter BoxDesktop, Console, and Mobile versions. To plant a seed, select it in the hotbar and press Use / Attack on the planting location.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Staff of Regrowth increases the number of seeds gathered when used on blooming herb plants, and has a chance to harvest an extra herb as well.
  • The Acorn is the only seed that can produce different species when planted on different blocks.
  • Grass seeds can only be planted on Dirt Blocks. They cannot be planted over other types of grass.
  • The textures of most seeds are a reference to mazebeans. However, there are exceptions to this, such as Pumpkin Seeds, Acorns, Gemcorns, and Flower Seeds.
