Attas seeds are a type of anima seed requiring level 76 Farming (boostable) to plant. They are obtained exclusively from the Hespori, and can only be planted in the anima patch within the intermediate tier of the Farming Guild. Planting an attas seed gives 100 Farming experience.
From the moment the seed is planted, the attas plant will increase the yield of player's farming patches worldwide, by increasing the chance to save a life by 5%. This effect stacks with other similar chance-to-save boosts, such as the magic secateurs and the Farming cape. The plant will provide this effect for approximately 3.5 days (8 x 640 mins) before dying. To maximise the duration of the plant's effects, it is recommended to plant it ~10 minutes after the Farming tick occurs in the following times (UTC):
- Day 1: 12:00 AM, 10:40 AM, 9:20 PM
- Day 2: 8:00 AM, 6:40 PM
- Day 3: 5:20 AM, 4:00 PM
- Day 4: 2:40 AM, 1:20 PM
The next growth stage will occur in approximately 10 hours and 15 minutes (refresh). When (after refreshing) this timer indicates 10 hours and 40 minutes, this signifies a Farming tick just occurred (due to the Farming tick varying between accounts, it is recommended to wait another 15 minutes, after it says 10 hours and 25 minutes).
Once the attas plant reaches its eighth growth stage (~74 hours after planting), it will begin to take on a withered appearance, indicating the plant will die in the next growth stage, though the benefits will remain until death. In order to reap the attas plant's benefits again, players must clear the anima patch and plant another attas seed. The plant cannot be resurrected with the Resurrect Crops spell. Players can remove the plant before the plant dies by using a spade on the anima patch, being prompted "are you sure you want to dig up this patch?"

Anima seeds no longer give hints about growing them in plant pots when attempting to plant them in non-anima patches, as that is not how they grow.
- Attas seeds are likely named after the Greek mythological figure and Phrygian god of Vegetation, Attis.
