Card description

It's the tiny seed of a... nobody actually knows.

Strategies

With

Using Seedling is a slightly risky move, as even though it has the ability to transform into powerful plants like Super-Phat Beets or a legendary plant like Three-Headed Chomper, it can also transform into a weak or useless plant, like Peashooter or even Lil' Buddy, or a plant that doesn't synergize well with your deck, like The Podfather in a non-pea based deck. Make sure to protect Seedling while it is on the field with plants that have the Team-Up trait, such as Shellery, since if taken out by a zombie, Seedling will not be able to transform into anything, wasting 2 sun and a potential free plant.

If possible, play this card in the earlier turns, as less dangerous zombie fighters will appear due to the low number of brains the zombie hero may have, especially if the zombie hero has 0 brains and if any of the lanes are freely open. However, the player will still need to rely on luck on whether it will survive, as a zombie trick can easily destroy this. The player can use tricks such as Fertilize to increase the health of Seedling, however, its health boost will not affect the plant it transforms into. Therefore, boosting tricks are not recommended, even if necessary, as the boost will be lost when it transforms.

Very rarely, Seedling may transform into Brainana. If that happens, the zombie hero will lose all their brains which not only prevents them from playing tricks, but also makes them unable to play zombie fighters. In that case, the plant hero should apply maximum brute force against the zombie hero's fighters as the zombie hero cannot replace any casualties suffered before the next turn, giving the player a chance to greatly weaken their opponent's defense. However, keep in mind that Flag Zombie and Gargologist can lower the cost of cards if there are enough of them on the field, Tricksters can have their cost lowered to 0 if the opponent has played enough tricks, and some cards conjured by Dr. Spacetime and Cheese Cutter can have their cost lowered to 0 as well, making these aforementioned cards the only cards that can be played during this rare event.

Seedling also synergizes well with Muscle Sprout as it boosts Muscle Sprout not only by itself, but also by the plant it transforms into. However, only Captain Combustible can primarily do this.

Against

Due to its low amount of health, you can simply use any low-cost zombie to destroy it, or cheap tricks such as Bungee Plumber. Take advantage of its low health with PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy zombies, such as Smashing Gargantuar, since they should be able to destroy the Seedling in one attack, which allows them to attack again, damaging anything behind it. If you do not know when will it be played, simply use tricks that spawn zombies like Beam Me Up or moving cards like Sumo Wrestler.

Trivia

  • Its description references its ability to turn into a random plant.
  • Before update 1.2.11, plants transformed did not activate their "When played" abilities if they had one. If this happened with Wild Berry, it would not move and make the turn go on forever until the player (or their opponent, if in Multiplayer) conceded.
  • A Seedling can turn into another Seedling as it costs less than 6 sun.
    • However, that Seedling will still be able to transform into another plant normally, so this has no adverse effects except for making it take an extra turn for the Seedling's ability to actually do something. However, the Seedling can also turn to another Seedling again.
    • If this happens, that third Seedling retains an equal chance to turn into yet another Seedling and this applies to every subsequent Seedling, meaning the "repeating Seedlings" process can potentially go on forever.
    • However, the chance of it happening is beyond extremely small.
  • Prior to update 1.12.16, viewing Seedling's stats during the Fight! phase would allow the player to see what it is transforming into, before it begins its animation to do so.
  • In AI battles, a player can tell whether or not something is going to be done to Seedling by tapping it and seeing if it transforms into a plant or not. If Seedling does not show what plant it transforms to, that means Seedling is bound to be destroyed.
  • It and Bean Counter are the only plants that face left.
  • If it transforms into a plant with a upon-use ability, one will only see the end of the ability animation as the ability's animation will start before the Seedling has completed the transformation, causing the beginning to become hidden by Seedling's transformation animation.
  • It is one of the three seed cards in the game, with the others being Lil' Buddy and Astrocado Pit.
    • Coincidentally, all three have 0 strength and 1 health.
  • It, Mirror-Nut, and Sweet Potato all fire off the same projectile when attacking.
    • Formerly, its attack was firing a shockwave, in similarity to the one in Dandy Lion King's attack.
