Heart of the Grove Drops

After PoE version 3.11.1: the Heart of the Grove monsters and bosses now have a chance based on their rarity, with higher-tier seeds having a higher chance, to drop a new plantable "seed". This can be placed in the Sacred Grove and will affect planted seeds around it, granting nearby seeds additional properties on being Harvested.

Heart of the Grove Challenge

2.1 Harvest the Heart of the Grove without being affected by Sacred Suffering

During ORANGE PHASE, Sacred Suffering is the yellow patch created from her circle-root-wall skill. When you're inside the circle, you'll have to break the wall ASAP or else the middle totem in the circle will start create more yellow patch on the ground, that deals phys-degen damage. So the faster you break the wall, the lesser the yellow patch ground she's created. Also this yellow patch seems to be permanent, it won't disappear till the fight end.

2.2 Harvest the Heart of the Grove without being hit by Orb of Thorns

During PURPLE PHASE, she'll have a charge up animation then shoot out a purple-vortex-version that shoot out purple projectiles. Best to hide behind a wall when you saw her her charging up the skill.

2.3 Harvest the Heart of the Grove without being hit by Vine Hammer

During GREEN/YELLOW PHASE, she'll spawn a giant hammer that'll slam the ground and deal splash damage, kinda like earthquake but with short duration and chartreuse color. Run away as far as you could when you saw the yellow hammer appear, the AOE splash is quite huge so advice to run away on sight.

2.4 Harvest the Heart of the Grove without being hit by Volatile Orchard

During BLUE PHASE, she'll have charge up animation then spawn out a row of snakes, then those snakes will turn themselves into blue-balls that'll chase towards you. Try run away from them then they'll disappear after few seconds.
