Fila-mint is a power mint plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2. When planted, he immediately deals 10 damage to zombies. He can also boost Fila-mint Family plants by increasing their damage, zombies zapped, and more. Fila-mint Family plants include:

Like other Power Mints, he cannot be imitated or affected by other mints. After 6 seconds, Fila-mint will disappear.

Fila-mint can be obtained with 100 mints in the Store when he is available.


Fila-mint is based on the "Lamiaceae" (also known as "mint") and a "filament," which is the part of a light bulb that produces light. This also refers to his electrical appearance.

His name is a portmanteau of the words "mint" and "filament."


The Fila-mint can greatly improve the efficiency of electrical plants, such as Lightning Reed or Electric Currant. This can turn a lot of harder levels much easier, as it can turn low-level plants into very strong ones. Another bonus in its usage is that it electrocutes all zombies on the screen, dealing great damage. Leveling up the plant increases the damage and duration of the Fila-mint, making it even more powerful. Also, unlike other 0-sun cost plants like Puff-shroom, it can be used on Last Stand levels. However, its major weakness is that it recharges very slowly, and cannot be imitated, so only use it when you can't deal properly with stronger zombies.

It is not recommended to use in Battlez, as its duration will quickly pass, and, unlike Reinforce-mint, it cannot do devastating combos. Also, it can only be used twice (more as you upgrade it), therefore greatly reducing its usefulness. It should only be used if the player wants to use a strategy based around electric plants.

Unlike Reinforce-mint and Bombard-mint, Fila-Mint is not very effective all by itself, as the damage it deals is extremely weak, and will require you to plant 20 Level 1 Fila-Mints just in order to kill one normal zombie.
