|All Planets on surface|
Organic is one of the resources in Astroneer. It can be collected by removing most of the grass-like plants found on the surface with the deform tool. It's main purpose is to generate power using the Small Generator. In some occasion, stacks of Organic may be found as green cubes on planets other than on Terran.
Seed[edit | edit source]
Seeds is a resource of similar type as organic, and It can be found by destroying a Spiker. They look similar to a small Spiker but do not attack the player. They currently have no use in crafting, but can be placed into any empty attachment slot.
Growing[edit | edit source]
Seeds can be planted by simply dropping them onto the ground and will slowly mature into full-grown Spikers. No special location is required, they can be planted in all types of terrain, both underground or on the surface. Dropping a Seed anywhere will initiate its growth phase. During the first 30 seconds of sprouting an astroneer can still pick them up, but once that period is over they become unremoveable. If a Seed is left in the Backpack in this state there will be no way to detach it and it will continue to grow until it eventually kills the astroneer. A full germination cycle from seed to mature plant with functional spikes takes 4 minutes. Growing Spikers can not be destroyed by digging around them, but will become vulnerable again once fully mature and will drop 2 more Seeds if they are uprooted.
