"Famous shipwreck survivor Craig McGill survived 47 months on live tree-roaches and stankroot, prepared as a healthy, raw salad. Farming alien plants, and researching their effects, is thus a proven survival strategy."
―PDA, Dialogue

The Exterior Growbed is an Appliance that can be constructed with the Habitat Builder. Its main purpose is to allow the player to plant underwater and terrestrial flora outside of their bases, with the express purpose of farming them.

The Exterior Growbed allows the player to utilize the farmed materials for manufacturing, fueling the Bioreactor or for decorating their base. The Exterior Growbed has twenty-four slots - which will be divided in 6 large slots, each containing 4 smaller slots total, in the future, to enable the player to better organize their farms.

Exterior Growbeds can be found on the Floating Island, and must be scanned in order to obtain it. One is found beside an Abandoned Seabase, housing a Chinese Potato PlantSmall Marblemelon, and a Marblemelon Plant. A second can be found inside an Observatory inside a different Abandoned Seabase, housing a Lantern TreeFern PalmGrub BasketVoxel Shrub, and Jaffa Cup. Six can be found away from the Abandoned Seabases, housing multiple flora.
