The Cowplant and You!
The Cowplant is possibly one of the hardest plants to find and grow in your game, but luckily we’re here to teach you how to find and care for this elusive beast. There are multiple ways to get the Cowplant in your game, but first you must locate a Cowplant Berry. This can be found through fishing, space exploration, digging for treasure, or harvesting if you’ve graft a dragonfruit with a snapdragon. Once you have found the berry, all you need to do is to plant it exactly the same way as you would any other plant in the game.
The Cowplant has three growth stages, Horn, Stem, and then the Full Grown plant. It can be grown at any gardening level, although it is recommended that you have some skill first. Once your Cowplant has fully matured, you will be able to have special, unique interactions with it, such as Feed, Play, Eat Cake, Collect Sample, Milk and Pet. Keep in mind that child sims will only ever have the Play interaction for the Cowplant.
You must be careful when taking care of your new Cowplant, as they need to be fed every 12 hours. If you don’t, you’ll find that the Cowplant has stuck out a cake-shaped tongue in the hope of luring it’s next meal, your Sims! There will be two options to either Feed the Cowplant, or Eat the Cake. If your Sim decides to eat the cake, there’s a chance that the Cowplant will either spit out or devour your Sim, the latter resulting in a visit from the Grim Reaper. Sims that have been spat out by the Cowplant will leave an essence of whatever mood they were in at the time inside of the Cowplant udder, which can be milked and drunk by any Sim to instantly get that mood. If a Sim has been killed by the Cowplant, it will leave the Essence of Life, which adds a few days to the life of the Sim who drinks it.
Make sure that you take good care of your Cowplant, as if it is not fed after an additional 12 hours after sticking out the cake, it will die and will not be able to be revived, leaving a husk in it’s place. This can make a wonderful decoration on a ranch style lot, however. Happy Simming!
