Infused Seeds is an item added by the Thaumic Tinkerer 2 mod. It is completely unique way of getting Essentia, which involves breeding, soil enrichment and advanced crop system.
The start is creating 6 primal Infused Seeds. The player should plant them and grow. Once they are fully grown, they will enrich the soil they are growing on with this aspect. They can then be harvested and another seed can be planted on this place. Once the second plant is fully grown, it will try to breed its aspect into a compound one by using the aspect in it and the aspect in the soil. If the operation is successful, a compound aspect is attuned to this plant, and the soil will be enriched with it.
There are also Aspect Tendencies, known as plant stats. Those are obtained from the plant with a primal aspect next to the selected plant and will boost some growth stats. See Thaumonomicon Intro for more information. Also, the tendencies are shared by the closely planted crops same as the aspects are shared by Aura Nodes, but in opposite. The crop with lower Tendencies will drain from the crop with higher Tendencies. Meaning that, this is more a downside and the player should avoid.
The tendencies of each primal aspect can stack up to 50 on a single plant, however those are hard to obtain. The player can only obtain 5 of each aspect Tendencies by neighboring with primal plant. Then 2 plants with all 5 need to be grown together to make one plant absorb 1 tendency from another. The player will get, f.e. 5/5/5/5/6/5 on one and 5/5/5/5/4/5 on other. The one with lower points needs to be immediately harvested so it won't take the Tendency back. Then the player should replant the plant with higher stats again, until 2 seeds of the same stats are obtained. Then the player should "breed" these 2 seeds together and utilize the one with lower stats after the process. The best points are 50/50/50/50/50/50 which is incredibly hard to obtain yet pretty profitable in terms of Essentia production.
When harvested, the crop will drop one or several Infused Seeds and one or several Imbued Grains with this aspect. The player can harvest every aspect in great amount after all plants are topped up. This can even be automated with the mods like MineFactory Reloaded, EnderIO. The Essentia is gained from both seeds and grains meaning that the player will not have any waste in the process.
Due to extreme hardness of obtaining high stats, it is recommended to top up the stats first on the primal aspect crops, and then breed the crops to compound aspects. This will result in having all of the available aspects already topped up, which will save many hours of tedious selection.

Research aspects in this item
Also has 6 of the aspect stated in the description.
"You are able to create a new form of plant by infusing mundane seeds with magical shards. These seeds can create a wide variety of items. Each aspect can create a different type of item.
You can only craft primal seeds, all others must be bred. When a fully-grown crop is harvested, it will deposit magical residue into the soil. If a crop is grown in soil containing high magical residue of an appropriate aspect, the two aspects will combine to form a seed of a different aspect.
Aspect Tendencies can also be bred into crops to increase certain traits. Terra will increase the magical residue left on the soil. Ignis will aid in the creation of new aspects. Ordo will increase the bounty from a plant. Perditio will increase the seeds dropped. Aer will allow a plant to receive other types of tendencies easier. A single plant can only have a maximum of 50 aspect tendencies.
There are two ways to give crops primal tendencies. Crops will occasionally absorb primal tendencies if planted next to plants of the appropriate aspect. However, plants can't receive more than 5 points in a single aspect in this manner.
Crops will also drain tendencies from nearby crops. A crop will drain points from an adjacent crop with an equal or greater number of points.
Some plants will create special grain, which can be made into potions.
Earth infused potions summons barriers between mobs that attack you.
Fire infused potions trap your enemies in a sphere of fire.
Air infused potions send your enemies up in the air.
Water infused potions chill surrounding lava."
The created crops will produce the aspect used to infuse them.
Infused Seeds has no known uses in crafting.
