In Hades 2, players assume the role of Melinoe, a witch adventuring the underworld. Unlike her brother Zagreus, who relies on his fists, Melinoe's power lies in her ability to cultivate and use the rare plants found in the game to her advantage. This guide will provide everything you need to know about getting and using Cattails in Hades 2.

Where to Find Cattails Seeds in Hades 2

Cattails seeds can only be found in the Oceanus biome, the second game area in Hades 2. To acquire these seeds, you must first unlock the Silver Spade tool, which allows you to dig up the seeds from specific spots within Oceanus. Here's a step-by-step guide to obtaining Cattails seeds:

  1. Collect 1 Ash to obtain the Crescent Pick.

  2. Head to Erebus and collect Silver.

  3. Use 10 Silver to unlock the Silver Spade.

  4. Equip the Silver Spade in your next run and defeat Hecate to reach Oceanus.

  5. Look for dig sites in Oceanus and use the Silver Spade to dig up the ground and retrieve Cattails Seeds.

It's important to note that the location of the seed spots changes with each run, requiring you to explore and search for them in every playthrough.

Growing Cattails in Hades 2

Once you've obtained Cattail seeds, the next step is to grow them in your garden. To do this, you'll need to unlock the Flourishing Soil incantation, which can be done by collecting one yellow Moly flower in Erebus. Here's how to grow Cattails:

  1. Unlock the Flourishing Soil incantation to receive two soil plots for growing your crops.

  2. Visit the Crossroads and locate the soil plots to the right of the Incantations Cauldron and Odysseus.

  3. Plant the Cattail seeds in the soil plots and wait for them to grow.

After completing nine encounters, the Cattail plants will yield Cattail items, used for unlocking various incantations.

Using Cattails in Hades 2

Cattails can be used to unlock several powerful incantations that provide various benefits in Hades 2. Here are some examples of incantations that require Cattails:

  1. Surge of Stygian Wells: Requires three Moly and three Cattails. Allows you to search Wells of Charon between biomes after defeating bosses.

  2. Purification of Fountain-Waters: Requires one Nightshade and one Cattail. Enhances fountains to restore 10% more health.

  3. Rite of River-Fording: Requires four Driftwood and two Cattails. Adds a Fishing Pier near Crossroads, allowing you to fish and receive rewards.

Additionally, if you find yourself with excess Cattails, you can sell them to the Wretched Broker for 12 bones apiece.
