As part of the Serenitea Pot housing system, miHoYo is introducing gardening during Genshin Impact’s 2.0 update next week. While not revolutionary, this system will allow you to grow and harvest plants in your own yard, increasing the amount of materials you can farm. That is, farm as in gather in mass, not farm as in gardening. Sorry, this is confusing.
Starting on July 21, you’ll be able to plant seeds of the various plants around Teyvat, saving you from at least some of the effort of running around the world harvesting flowers en masse. In this guide we’ll tell you everything we know about gardening including how to get seeds and how to use them in farms.
Unlock Requirements: Reach Reputation Level 3 in Inazuma and obtain Naku Weed from Madarame Hyakubei. Then complete “The Art of Horticulture” world quest to get the Seed Dispensary Gadget from Madame Ping.

How to Get Seeds
Once you have the Seed Dispensary Gadget, you’ll occasionally get seeds whenever you harvest a plant. The seeds will be for the type of plant you just picked up. After you’ve obtained any given seed you’re also able to purchase some from the Creatures of the Realm section in the Realm Depot.
This means you’ll likely have just as many or more seeds than you do the original product. But growing them isn’t easy or infinite.
How to Grow Plants
First you need to purchase fields to grow said plants in. These will run you 300 Realm currency each so hopefully you’ve saved up enough. They offer four plots each for a total of 12 and it looks like they’re unique and can’t be bought more than once.
Unfortunately, you’re limited in what you can grow. Each only supports certain items. The Jade Field, for example, grows things like carrots, Jueyun Chili, and Small Lamp Grass.
- Jade Field: Grows Radish, Carrots, Jeuyun Chili, Mushroom, Sweet Flower, Valberry, Mint, and Small Lamp Grass.
- Luxuriant Glebe: Grows Windwheel Aster, Glaze Lily, Violetgrass, Silk Flower, Qingxin, Cecelia, and a new material from Inazuma.
- Orderly Meadow: Calla Lily, Sea Ganoderma, Snapdragon, Lotus Head, Horsetail, and another material from Inazuma.
After the seeds have been planted you will need to wait a certain amount of time for them to grow. We don’t yet know how long this will take or if the length of time needed will vary. The Silk Flower seeds used in the example take two days and 22 hours. Once they’re done growing you can harvest them and use the plot once again.
Plant something by accident? You can clear the plot and cancel the growing process before it completes. Keep in mind that you’ll lose the seed you planted!
And that’s all we know right now! Check back after Genshin Impact 2.0 releases next week on July 21. With it we get a new region, Inazuma, and three new playable characters to collect: Ayaka, Yoimiya, and Sayu. Plus we’ll be unlocking the Electro version of our travelers!
