- This article is about the artifact. For the fruit seed, see Ancient Seeds.
The Ancient Seed is an Artifact that can be found by digging up an Artifact Spot in Cindersap Forest or the Mountains (including the Quarry), or obtained inside Fishing Treasure Chests and Artifact Troves. It is also a rare drop from Bugs, Grubs, Cave Flies, Mutant Flies, and Mutant Grubs (0.5%). It can also be found cutting down foliage in Prehistoric Floors. Placing a packet of Ancient Seeds in a Deconstructor yields an Ancient Seed.
The only productive use of the first Ancient Seed artifact that you find is donating it to the Museum. The item contributes to the total count of Museum donations.
See Gunther (behind the counter) to collect your reward for the donation. It includes one pack of (plantable) Ancient Seeds, plus the recipe that is needed to craft any further Ancient Seed artifacts you find into more seeds.
Ancient Seed is not used in any bundles.
