How can you grow the Sons of the Forest plants? Sons of the Forest is a survival horror game in which it is very important to know how to manage the survival part of the game. For this reason, in addition to learning to cook, it is also important to learn everything there is to know about the Sons of the Forest plants. This way, you will be able to raise them to obtain both an excellent source of food and important resources. In fact, once you have been able to create your own settlement, you can create real crops in which you can grow various types of plants to always have food available to draw from if you don't want to go hunting.
How to grow the Sons of the Forest plants
The ability to grow plants will be available as soon as you start the game. However, although you will not yet have the possibility to plant seeds, you can start building the planters that you will need to grow the Sons of the Forest plants. The game gives you the possibility to choose between two different types of planters, namely the standing planter, which requires 18 sticks, and the wall planter, which requires 16 sticks.
Once you have decided which of the two to use, select it and place it on the ground in the desired area. The sticks you will need to build the planters can be found practically anywhere, both on the ground and by cutting them from small trees using an axe. However, once you have the necessary sticks and have built the planter, keep in mind that you can only plant one type of seed in each of them, so it is not possible to use the same planter for different types of crops.
How to get seeds in Sons of the Forest
Obviously, for Sons of the Forest plants to grow, you need seeds. Seeds can be harvested by taking berries or destroying plants. In Sons of the Forest, there are several plants that allow you to obtain seeds that you can then sow to grow plants. Below is a complete list:
- Aloe Vera
- Devil's Club
- Guarana Berry
Once you have obtained the seeds, they will be present in your inventory, and to be able to plant them, all you have to do is interact with a planter and wait for the leaf-shaped icon to appear. Once you interact with the planter, a menu will open where you can choose the type of seed to plant. As for timing, keep in mind that you will have to wait two or three days in-game before you can use them as food. However, both Kevin and Virginia will be able to eat the Sons of the Forest plants automatically as soon as they grow, if they are edible plants.
