Plant Species Y is a plant in the Scorched Earth-DLC of ARK: Survival Evolved.
The plant can be grown by putting Plant Species Y Seeds in a Large Crop Plot. The seeds can be found by harvesting desert plants.
Once fully grown, it produces Plant Species Y Traps similar to bear traps. Unlike the Plant Species X, it is not a defensive plant and can't shoot projectiles.
The Plant Species Y grows the same as any other plot-based plant, consuming both water and fertilizer to grow, but unlike other plants, it consumes significantly less of both once it reaches maturity. One should monitor water levels when growing these plants indoors.
The following items can be used as fertilizer:
* When a plant has its maximum of fruits, it needs less fertilizer. As the fruits spoil after some time, leaving the plant in a non-full state for some time, these numbers are rather theoretical maximums.
