The Plant Species X Seed is a seed dropped after killing a Plant Species X and can also be found in red bushes at the top of mountains as a rare drop. It can now also be found in abundance in swamps.

Plant Species X
We have updated our site and moved a few things. An updated version of this page is available here:
The elusive Plant Species X from Ark is a plant and a defensive turret in one. Since its introduction into Ark, it has changed little, except for where you’ll find the seeds to grow it!
Finding Seeds For Plant Species X
In the beginning, you could get seeds by harvesting the bushes on top of the mountains. But that certainly doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. I’ve tried for over 6 hours to see if this still works, and while I found a ton of Rare Flowers, I didn’t find any Plant Species X Seeds.
So where are they? Plant Species X now lives in the Swamp Biome where it was apparently always intended to live. And instead of harvesting random bushes to get the seeds, your best bet now is to find a live specimen and harvest that by hand. It is possible to find the odd rare Plant Species X seed by harvesting certain bushes in the swamp, but this puts you in the bad position of not being able to see some of the swamp predators as they approach you. That’s because they will be concealed in the tall vegetation.
Sound dangerous? It is. But don’t worry, the Plant Species X you find in the wild is not weaponized and can be found on the edge of the swap. This makes it possible to zip in, get some seeds, and get back out.
That also means that the Plant Species X does not quite look the same in the wild as it does fully grown in a Crop Plot. Don’t worry; I’ve got a handful of screenshots and, a bit further down the page, GPS Coordinates for you.
Remember, you get the best results harvesting the wild plant by hand! And no, it doesn’t hurt you; it’s not weaponized until people get their hands on it and grow it in a crop plot.
The first screenshot below shows Plant Species X in the wild. The next two screenshots show the bushes from which I’ve had random seed drops. Please note that I have found only one seed so far per bush type in all my searching. So it may not be a viable method of harvesting. Also keep in mind that, so far, I’ve managed to get between 7 & 12 seeds per harvested wild Plant Species X.
