Botany Skill Starfield

Botany, classified as an Advanced Science Skill in Starfield, significantly enhances your interactions with plant life and scanning flora, making them more manageable and beneficial for players. Leveling up in Botany is a straightforward process, primarily involving the exploration of habitable worlds to meet harvesting challenges.

Botany is a specialized skill that can be useful for players interested in optimizing their planetary exploration. It can reduce the number of scans required to gather comprehensive plant data, speeding up obtaining valuable planetary scan information. Moreover, it can help cultivate outpost plants, enhancing their overall productivity. While Botany is a potent skill for players focused on thorough planetary exploration or those interested in outpost cultivation, but it might be less crucial for others. However, it remains an intriguing option, especially for players strongly inclined towards outpost development.

Synergistically, Botany pairs well with Zoology for the swift completion of planet surveys. It’s also a valuable companion to Outpost Engineering for players looking to delve into farming, offering a comprehensive approach to planetary resource management and utilization.
