Plant Species Z Seed is a food item introduced in Aberration and also available on Genesis: Part 1, Crystal Isles, Genesis: Part 2, and Fjordur. It can be used to grow the Plant Species Z.

Passive charge light creatures, like the  Bulbdog, favor these seeds above anything else when being tamed.


To obtain the seeds, you have to find a wild Plant Species Z plant. It is not harvestable, instead you have to keep standing around next to it. Every 60 seconds it will retract its tentacle and spit out a seed. Some Plant Z Species are bugged when they spit out a seed, where when the seed hits the ground it will disappear after a second or two. A way to fix this is to watch where the seed hits the ground and place a foundation at that location. The seed then hits the foundation and won't fall through the ground or disappear.

In Fjordur seeds can be gathered, though rarely, from the plants with oval-shaped tops in the Space cave.


When placed in a  Large Crop Plot with  Fertilizer and water, the Plant Species Z will grow.

  • ? Days* Midling -> Growthling
  • ? Days* Growthling -> Fruitling

* times are ingame-times

This plant will spawn  Plant Species Z Fruits, in your inventory, which act as a flash-bang grenade that blind both survivors and creatures for a few seconds.

Spoil times

  • The Plant Z seeds do not spoil.
  • After a wild Plant Species Z plant spits out a seed you have a 30 second timer to pick it up before it decomposes.
