Deuterium Rich Plant is a type of flora.


Deuterium Rich Plant is a type of flora which players can harvest by hand.

These blue flowers are scattered across most planetary surfaces. Their bright glow allows them to be easily found at night.

While always the same vivid blue colour, they can be found with slight variations to their appearance and more than one species can be found on the same world. They are found on all worlds and all biomes, including Dead worlds.

Like normal Flora, they can be scanned with a visor and can be renamed and uploaded as a discovery.


Interacting with the plant gives a short-term boost to the player's jetpack. This can help the player travel greater distances using the "jetpack + melee" combo.

Additional information[]

There are three types of common flora that are enriched with a specific element:

At one point the deuterium variety could be harvested to obtain the Deuterium resource. However this was patched out sometime during one of the NEXT/Abyss/Visions eras. [1]

Because of this, the element Deuterium, which is required for some craftable items, has to be obtained from alternative means.
