Type Plant
Added in Patch 275.0

Plant Species Z is a plant in the Aberration DLC of ARK: Survival Evolved.

The plant can be grown by putting Plant Species Z Seed (Aberration).png Plant Species Z Seeds in a Large Crop Plot.png Large Crop Plot. The seeds can be found at wild Plant Species Z plants.

Once fully grown, it produces Plant Species Z Fruit (Aberration).png Plant Species Z Fruits, which act as a flash-bang grenade that blind both survivors and creatures for a few seconds. Unlike the Plant Species X, it is not a defensive plant and can't shoot projectiles.

Standing near the plant (both wild and plot) causes it to glow and scare away any creatures that are frightened by light. Furthermore, wild variants restore and revitalize any player and tamed dinos nearby if they have not been hurt or handcuffed for the last 5 minutes. (due to game mechanics this is not effective on baby creatures). If players stay nearby the plant will retreat its tentacle every 60 to 90 seconds and expel a single fruit; collecting it provides one Plant Species Z seed. If all players leave the vicinity for several seconds the countdown will reset; otherwise it will continue producing fruit at the same interval as long as at least one player is nearby.

Production[edit | edit source]

The Plant Species Z grows the same as any other plot-based plant, consuming both water and fertilizer to grow.

The following items can be used as fertilizer:

Fertilizer type Fertilizer units Fertilizes for Fertilizes full* plant for
Human Feces.png Human Feces 1,000 10m 3h 5m
Small Animal Feces.png Small Animal Feces 3,500 35m 10h 48m
Medium Animal Feces.png Medium Animal Feces 7,500 1h 15m 23h 8m
Large Animal Feces.png Large Animal Feces 15,000 2h 30m 1d 22h 15m

* 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.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Wild Plant Species Z.jpg

A common mistake many survivors make is believing the wild plants to be dangerous. They are perfectly safe and the plant will not harm the player, tames, or any other creature in close proximity to it (It will scare away creatures that are negatively affected by light however). In fact it is on the contrary as standing near the plant gives revitalization properties.
