Venom Urchin is a farmable agricultural product.


Venom Urchin seeds can be acquired from a hired Farmer, or purchased from the Construction Research Station in the Space Anomaly for 3 Salvaged Data.

The venom sacs in this plant will quickly burn through regular gloves and into a player's skin. One drop of the pungent sap of this plant can leave a player temporarily paralyzed. To avoid this, harvesting requires Haz-Mat Gauntlet.
