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.
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.
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.
|Raptor Bane 40%|
|Yields Pomegrenade which can be processed into Pomegrenade Extract, a mild, non-addictive, healing item.
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.
Salt Vine Seed
|Yields Salt Bulbs which can be deconstructed into Sodium. Salt bulbs are water reactive and will explode upon contact with water.||Salt Bulb 60%|
Tobacco Vine Seed
|Yields Tobacco Buds which can be processed into Pipe Tobacco, which when smoked in a Captain's Pipe, grants minor Psychosis Resistance||Tobacco Bud 70%|
Note: All seeds deconstruct into Carbon x1 in 30 seconds.

- Gardening was added in 0.10.50
- While pomegrenade are called pomegrenades in-game, the name "creepingorange" is used for console commands and in-code identifier
- In-game, plants display flowers that are the same color as their respective seeds and fruits, which helps discerning them once they've grown. Pomegrenade plants have orange seeds / flowers / fruits, Salt Vine's are light green, Raptor Bane's are pink and Tobacco's are blue.
