Aquatic Plants

You’ve learned how to develop some specialized plants that enhance your mobility in water, and created Vorit, a strange jelly-like mushroom which allows you to breathe normally underwater or even in a total vacuum for a while, then harmlessly passes through your system.

Aquapods are especially useful for the copious amounts of genetic information they contain, in both the seeds and bulbs.

You’ve learned to raise bees in an apiary to provide you with useful resources. Make an Apiary Crafting Station at your Machining Table to get started.

Raising bees is pretty complex. If you’re not sure how, buy a guide from the Bee Refuge in the Science Outpost, accessible once you leave your starter planet.

As a simple starter tip, you need a microscope-identified queen, a matching microscope-identified drone, one or more frames, and some flowers planted nearby for production to start.

Basic Crops

Though the universe is filled with many strange plants, the Protectorate academy taught you about quite a few. You’ve learned to start culvtivating these plants for yourself at a Greenhouse which can be made at your Machining Table . You can also (crudely) extract genetic material from plants for use in the creation of more complex plants at a Sprouting Table , also made at your Machining Table.

Tip: Grow lots of corn! Corn is an incredibly versatile crop, being a source of oil, cattle feed, and the basis of many more complex plants.

  • 120xResearch
  • 2xLiving Root

Advanced Crops

You’ve mastered all the plants the Protectorate Academy taught you about, allowing you to artificially create many more plants, including the all-important Cotton .

You’re ready to start branching into making various medicinal plants that don’t provide satiation, but don’t spoil and provide useful buffs like environmental resistance, healing, increased stats, or even act as weapons!

You’ll need genes from this point on – found by processing seeds, saplings and some produce in the Sprouting Table or its upgrades. Some plants produce more seeds than others: flowers unsuited for dye-making are a good early source of seeds.

You can help the Official Barotrauma Wiki by expanding it.

Gardening is a mechanic in Barotrauma allowing submariners to grow renewable resources from the safety of their submarine. There are four different growable plants that produce special fruits which can be crafted into different items, or just thrown about and splattered on the hulls of the sub.

The seeds can be bought either in a city and/or a research outposts, found in submarine wrecks or by deconstructing fruits.

They can be also deconstructed, each yielding 1 carbon.



To start a garden, first place a Small Planter Box inside the submarine. Then, use a Seed on the box in order to plant it.

The bud consumes water over time and grows. A Watering Can is used to refill the Planter Box with fresh water.

When mature, the plants will bear and drop fruits by the Planter Box.

If the water in the Planter Box runs out, the plant will die. Dead plants can be uprooted by hand, allowing the Planter Box to be repotted or removed entirely.

Planter Boxes in contact with seawater will be drained of their fresh water supply.

Fertilizers can be used on Planter Boxes to double the growing speed.

Seeds can be stored in Seed Bags.

Deconstructing fruits yields its seed and either Carbon or Sodium.


Name Uses Yield
Raptor Bane Seed Yields Raptor Bane which can be processed into Raptor Bane Extract, a nauseant for humans, a lethal poison for Mudraptors.

Yields Mutated Raptor Bane which has no use but recycling.

Yields Mutated Pomegrenade which will explode, deal damage, and start a fire upon even a light impact with the ground/platform. Will not explode if it spawns on a platform directly.

you should be able to pet the turret

im drunk btw, but you can pet doretta, lootbugs, god knows what else.

Only if it beeps happily.

Yes, it would. Of course it would. What in tarnation would it do otherwise.

but you can pet doretta, lootbugs, god knows what else.

Don’t forget the pog plants

You can also smack gunk seeds.

the best drunk post i have seen so far

Yeah who needs to reload them? You should be able to press E to pet them. If they need ammo they can fly their ass to a resupply pod like everybody else

Found the real fucking engineer

As an Engi main I am now sad that this is not a thing. Thanks.

Also Engi main can confirm

Only if they make petting a different button from E, so you're not desperately trying to reload the turret in the middle of a fight and get stuck in the petting animation

What if we only pet a fully loaded turret?

I wish there was an alternate pet button so I'd never have to stand there patting some leaf lover's worthless Steeeve which is standing there in front of the resupply/downed dwarf I'm desperately trying to get at while a horde is rapidly approaching.
