Salt Vine Seed is a Gardening item.


Salt Vine Seeds are small lime colored seeds, storable in Seed Bags. They are the main, natural source of Salt Bulbs, which can be deconstructed into Sodium - an important resource for crafting Explosives and some Medical Items.

It is a relatively dangerous plant to grow as produced Salt Bulbs explode shortly after coming in contact with water, inflicting Burns and a lengthy Stun to anyone within 0.5 meters. It is advisable to plant the seeds in a room least likely to be flooded, or at least infrequently visited. Water from the Watering Can DOES NOT trigger the explosion. Salt Bulbs should be stored in watertight Containers to prevent explosion hazards.

Salt Vine Seeds can be bought at some Outposts, obtained by deconstructing Salt Bubs, and looted from Wrecks.
