To get Poppy in Hades 2, you must use the Silver Spade to dig Poppy seeds out of the round, brown spots in Tartarus. You can also get Poppy from growing Mysterious seeds.

How to get the Silver Spade

To get your hands on the Silver Spade, cast the Night’s Craftwork Incantation at The Crossroads’ Cauldron with just one Moly. This ritual unlocks various gathering tools, including the Silver Spade, which is perfect for unearthing seeds during your runs.

When you’re back at the Crossroads, you can grow Poppy seeds in Soil Plots as long as you’ve completed the Flourishing Soil Incantation.
