Small Planter Box

The Small Planter Box is an item in RUST used for growing plants. Although they existed before its release, they are most commonly associated with the Farming Update.

Small planter boxes are not found in known crates or barrels or as scientists’ drops. Players may learn it directly via the research table or by investing a small amount of Scrap into the tier 1 workbench tech tree. 

Occupying considerably less real estate within a base than their Large Planter Box counterparts (they take up one-third of a square foundation), small planter boxes are more space-friendly and commonly employed by base owners to grow just enough food for day-to-day operations.

Functionally, they are a 3-plot raised garden bed that can grow up to 3 assorted seeds at a time. Plants will grow individually, with crossbreeding possible for those of similar type next to each other. The water retention capacity of this planter type is 3000ml.
