Greeneries are various plants in Hades 2 that you’ll use as ingredients in incantations. Along with reagents, you’ll need to collect Greeneries to grow strong enough to kill Time.

Some plants come from seeds that can grow in soil plots at the crossroads. However, others can only be collected during your dungeon runs.

Before you can grow seeds, you’ll need to unlock this feature by casting the Flourishing Soil incantation. Once you do, you will see two plots of fertile soil near Odysseus, where you can plant certain seeds. Eventually, you’ll be able to unlock additional soil plots to really grow your Greenery garden.
