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 Box. To plant a seed, select it in the hotbar and click on the planting location.
