Not to be confused with Plantera Seedling, a pet-summoning item dropped by Plantera in Master Mode.

The Mud Bud is a post-Plantera pet-summoning item which can be purchased from the Zoologist for 50 after defeating Plantera. It summons Plantero, a miniature version of Plantera, that follows the player. The pet keeps pace with the player by flying in a manner similar to Plantera's second form while emitting a trail of falling leaves that are affected by wind.


  • The Mud Bud is stated to be Redigit's favorite pet item in the game.[1]
  • The pet appears similar to both of Plantera's map icons.
  • The name Plantero could be a portmanteau of Plantera and sombrero, referencing the pet's hat. Alternatively, it could be seen as a masculine equivalent of Plantera, given that the vowel at the end of a word usually indicates its grammatical gender in languages such as Italian or Spanish.
  • The pet was introduced following a suggestion by a player.[2]
