Seed of Rejuvenation

Starting at 1st level, your patron has gifted you with a magical seed infused with invigorating and restorative magic. You have one seed at 1st level. You gain an additional seeds at 9th and 18th level. You regain expended seeds when you finish a short or long rest.

As an action on your turn, you may plant a seed on one target you can touch. At the end of that creature's next turn, the seed blooms with the effect of casting Healing Word on the target at your Warlock spell slot level without expending a spell slot.

Cross-Pollinate

Starting at 6th level, whenever one of your seeds blooms, you may use your reaction to cross-pollinate the seed to a target you can see within 15 feet of the original target with a new seed that will bloom at the end of the new creature’s next turn. Each time a seed cross-pollinates, the Warlock spell slot level of the spell is reduced by 2. After a seed blooms as a 1st level spell or is reduced to a 0 spell slot, the seed expires.

Implacable Growth

Starting at 10th level, you gain resistance to necrotic damage. In addition, when one of your seeds blooms, you can end either one disease or one condition afflicting the creature. The condition can be blinded, deafened, paralyzed, or poisoned.

Vines of the Grove

Starting at 14th level, you conjure forth grasping vines to restrain your foes. As an action, hostile creatures you can see within 20 feet of you must make a Strength saving throw against your Warlock Spell save. On a failed save, a creature takes 4d8 Bludgeoning damage and is restrained for 1 minute. On a successful save, the target takes half damage and is not restrained. A creature restrained by the vines can use it’s action to make a Strength save against your Warlock spell save to break free. On a success, it frees itself. On a failure, the creature takes an additional 1d8 Bludgeoning damage for each time it has failed to break free (1 failed save is 1d8, 2 failed saves is 2d8, etc.) as the vines slowly choke the life out of the creature.
