We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Organic is one of the resources in Astroneer. It can be collected by removing most of the brightly-colored plants found on the surface of planets with the deform tool. Its main purpose is to generate power using the Small Generator. Occasionally, Organic plants may be found on planets other than Terran.

Variation[edit | edit source]

  • Edged Organic: Most common of all, found when collecting plants
  • Cuboid Organic: Uncommmon, found etched on a side of rocks on Barren planets
  • Droplet Organic: Rare, may be found when using the deform tool on the Arid's tumblespikes or on lure plants.

Seed[edit | edit source]

Seeds are a resource of a similar type to organic, and 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. 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. Spikers grown in this manner behave exactly like wild ones, stabbing players who come too close and dropping more Seeds on death.
