This ARK Plant Species Z Guide essentially details everything you need to know about collecting Plant Species Z Seeds, growing the acquired seeds, and the uses of Plant Species Z in both PVP and PVE.
There are plenty of uses of Plant Species Z and in this guide; I have explained everything that you need to know about finding Plant Species Z Seeds, how to acquire them, and growing them to get the Plant Species Z.
ARK Aberration Plant Species Z
In order to get the seed, you need to find the plant, and start to move towards it slowly. As soon as you see the light, you need to stay in the place and wait for around 5-10 minutes. The glow is there to scare away the creatures that are afraid of light.
After a short amount of time, you will see that the plant will spew out a Plant Species Z seed.
This plant is not defensive like the Plant Species X so there is no need to be careful about projectiles and you would have to stay around it for like 60 to 90 seconds and it will retract its tentacles and bring out a fruit that has a seed.
If you leave the area for several seconds, the timer will reset. Otherwise, you will keep getting the fruit after regular intervals
With the seed at your disposal, you need to pick the seed up and plant it. You can plant the seed by putting it inside a large crop pot. However, in this case, you need to put it in the Greenhouse.
Once planted, you will have to wait for a very long time for them to grow. Even on a 10x version of a normal server, you will have to wait – a lot! As for growing it, it requires a Large Crop Plot, Fertilizer, and Water.
However, once the seed has grown fully, you should be able to acquire Plant Species Z Fruit/Weapon. These things can essentially be considered as grenades. You can place them in your hotbar and use them as grenades, especially in PVP.
When used, these things should blind the other players and disorient them for a short duration just like a flash bang. This would work for both the survivors and creatures.
