How to get Plant Species Z
If you want to get this Plant generally without cheats, you will need to get its seed. Getting the seed is pretty different from the typical approach of using an axe or chainsaw.
To get the seed, you must find the Plant and move towards it slowly. As soon as you see the light, you must stay in the place and wait for around 1-5 minutes. The glow is there to scare away the creatures afraid of the 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.
Now all you have to do is 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 a very long time for them to grow. Even on a 10x version of a normal server, you will have to wait – a lot! Growing 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 grenades. You can place them in your Hotbar and use them as grenades, especially in PVP.
These should blind the other players and disorient them for a short duration, just like a flashbang. It would work for both the survivors and creatures.
