Seeds are used to grow trees, grass, and herbs that can provide the player with crafting ingredients for mostly potions, 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 are planted in specific soils, and can also be planted in Clay Pots or in any Planter Box. To plant a seed, select it in the hotbar and press ⚒ Use / Attack above the planting location.
Currently, there are 17 different types of seeds, 6 of which are grass seeds and 7 of which are herb seeds.
