Not to be confused with the Seedling, which is also dropped by Plantera, but is not exclusive to Master Mode.

The Plantera Seedling is a Master Mode-exclusive pet dropped by Plantera with a 1/4 (25%) chance. Upon use, it summons a Plantera Seedling pet.

It is not to be confused with the Mud Bud, which spawns a different pet and is instead sold by the Zoologist after defeating Plantera.


  • The buff tooltip is likely a reference to the cult horror musical Little Shop of Horrors, in which the main character discovers a talking alien plant that feeds on blood. The tooltip "What exactly does it eat, anyway?" is a reference to the line “What do you want from me, blood?” in the song "Grow For Me".
    • Additionally, the sprite for the item looks similar to the potted Audrey II plant shown later in the film.
