- Research & Skill Requirement
- Horticulture 1, Outpost Engineering, Botany
- Find a planet with plants (Flora)

Research & Skill Requirement
|Botany (Rank 1)|
|Outpost Engineering (Rank 1)|
Find A Planet With Plants (Flora)
Make sure the planet you're planning to farm on has at least 1 Flora. To access this information simply go to the map and place the cursor over the planet. Then check the number next to the Flora to see how many species of plants are there on the planet.
Scan The Plants You Want To Farm To 100%
Make sure to scan the plants you want to farm all the way to 100% and check that the plant is "Outpost Production Allowed". You can check what resources they will produce by scanning them.
How To Build
Set Up Outpost
To build a Greenhouse, you must first make an Outpost Beacon. This will enable you to create in nearby areas.
How To Build Greenhouse
Once you set up an Outpost you will be able to select and build Greenhouse. If the Greenhouse isn't showing up double-check if you have met the prerequisites.
|1||Build the greenhouse once you have met the requirements. You can also build a Solar Array next to it to power it up.|
*There is a commercial version of Greenhouse which is overall superior.
|2||You can view the resources needed to harvest materials in the console located outside the door of the Greenhouse.|
|3||Build a Water Extractor and Storage - Liquid next to the Greenhouse to continuously supply it with water. |
|4||Add a solid storage and connect it to the Greenhouse to store items. |
|5||You can wait to pass the time for the storage to be filled up with materials. |
