The official name of this plant is Lotus Root. However, a literal translation can be found in its infobox. The official name is to be used on all pages that refer to this plant.

Lotus Root (莲藕射手; pinyin: lián'ǒu shèshǒu) is a plant from Steam Ages in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. He shoots water droplets at zombies that deal 20 damage per shot. He is also capable of absorbing toxic steam from sewers, allowing him to shoot a poisonous black water droplet that can poison zombies.

The poisonous water droplet can deal up to 500 damage, including his poison effect.


He is based on the root of the lotus plant, nelumbo.

Place him around steam sewers to remove the steam. If the player is not dealing with large groups of zombies or planning to place plants near the steam, it might actually be beneficial to keep letting the Lotus Root use its special steam attack while healing him with either Heavenly Peach or Trump Tulip.

However, he is outclassed by Blover because it can blow away all the steam at once.

It is not recommended to use him outside of Steam Ages, as he will be a costlier, slower recharging Peashooter that cannot synergize with Torchwood.



  • His normal projectile uses Acidic Citrus' projectile sprites, but colored light blue.
  • Despite being based on a real-life aquatic plant, he can't be planted in the water in Big Wave Beach.
  • Despite attacking with water, his projectile cannot extinguish Explorer Zombie's torch.
  • It is the second plant to be based on lotus in the game, with the first being Lotuspot.
