The Plantation Staff is a craftable Hardmode summon weapon. It summons a miniature Plantera that protects the player by firing seeds, spores, and thorn balls at enemies. It additionally is surrounded by six tentacles that deal contact damage. If the player reaches 75% health, the minion will enrage and begin to ram into enemies, dealing contact damage. It requires three minion slots to summon one Mini Plantera and only one Mini Plantera can be active at once. The minion itself inflicts Poisoned for 5 seconds upon contact, the green seed projectiles fired by the minion inflict Poisoned for 3 seconds and the pink seeds inflict Poisoned for 1 second.

Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stat bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, minions cannot deal critical hits. The only lasting advantage a Mythical Plantation Staff has over a Ruthless one is knockback.

  • The Plantation staff is very good for crowd-control and ground-based enemies, but does very poorly against faster flying enemies such as Calamitas, as it spends most of the time trying to catch up to them instead of attacking.


  • The Mini Plantera behaves similarly to Plantera in Revengeance Mode whilst being obtainable on Normal Mode.
  • The Plantation Staff was implemented based on a community suggestion made by Providab on the mod's Discord server.
