How to Use Shriveled Seed in Genshin Impact

There is no way to use the Shriveled Seed in Genshin Impact at the time of writing this article. We tried everything we could think off. First, we went to our Serenitea Pot and tried to plant the seed. Doesn’t work. In fact, it doesn’t seem you can plant it anywhere at all. Then we went to every single merchant throughout Liyue and tried to sell the thing. Can’t do that either. There simply doesn’t seem to be anything to do with the Shriveled Seed at the moment, so we can only assume that it will become important in a future update. I’ve seen people say that it’s a currency in Sumeru, an area that hasn’t been added to the game yet. I don’t know whether that’s true or not; we’ll have to wait and see.

As soon as we find out how to use the Genshin Impact Shriveled Seed, we’ll be sure to update the guide and let you know. Until then, feel free to share your guesses as to what it’s for in the comments below. If you want to know where to find the seed in the first place, you need to go to the small lake in the southeast of the Chasm Main Mining Area. It’s behind an illusionary wall. Once you’re at the lake, you’ll have to use Elemental Sign to press three hidden buttons to remove the barriers from the three elemental pillars. Activate all three pillars to get rid of the barrier around the chest in the center. Open it, and you’ll get the Shriveled Seed and the People of the Valley of Life achievement.
