Plants vs. Zombies Wiki

The Red Plant-It is a galactic super-rare plant environment card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the PvZH Mega-Grow Icon.pngMega-Grow class. It costs 5SunPvZH.png to play, and its ability gives all plants in it +5StrengthPvZH.png/+5HeartPvZH.png. This ability persists until The Red Plant-It is removed from the field.


Its overall design and description reference the experiment done by NASA plant researchers in which potatoes were shown to be able to grow on Mars, which is also called "the Red Planet."

Its name is a portmanteau of "the Red Planet," referring to its appearance, and "plant-it," referring to the potatoes planted on it.

The term "TLC" mentioned in its description is an acronym for "tender loving care," which is "to be treated in a kind and caring way."

Card description

It may seem an inhospitable place for Plants, but with a little TLC and some patience, it'll grow more than just potatoes. Much more.

This is a powerful environment that gives all plants in that environment a huge stat boost, allowing even the weakest plants to wreak serious havoc and last a few turns. And because it is an environment, it will be able to affect many plants over time, until removed. Due to this, using plants with Team-Up is recommended, as you can increase the damage output heavily on that lane. Grass Knuckles does this the best. Captain Combustible can play Invasive Species here, turning it into a monstrous 10/9 for 3 sun.

The only issue is that this is an expensive environment and if the zombie hero manages to save their brains, they can replace this environment with one of theirs, wasting the amount of sun you used. So it's best to use this if the zombie hero is dealing brute force to the plant hero, or if they wasted all their brains on zombies.

However, this environment can be played before or after a plant is played in it, which can be useful if you had played a powerful plant on board. This combo can work effectively with plants that have the DoubleStrikeAlt.pngDouble Strike trait like Bananasaurus Rex to do lots of damage each combat. However, be aware of most instant-kill cards, especially from the PvZH Brainy Icon.pngBrainy and PvZH Beastly Icon.pngBeastly classes.

There is also a special technique using Grape Power or Grape Responsibility to massively boost plants played here since even when this environment is replaced by another one, the plant will still keep the boost.


This environment is extremely dangerous, as its gargantuan boost persists even if it is overridden, and you must counter it immediately. Playing one of your own cheap environments is a valid solution, and Excavator Zombie works too, as he will bounce both it and the plants inside, forcing your opponent's costly replay. Rocket Science, Primordial Cheese Shover and Locust Swarm can also destroy said plant easily. useful for weakening and possibly destroying the plants in this environment. If all else fails, resort to using PvZH Deadly Icon.pngDeadly zombies or Bouncing plants on that environment, or block the lane with a weak zombie. Just take note that PvZH Mega-Grow Icon.pngMega-Grow heroes may use bonus attacks or DoubleStrikeAlt.pngDouble Strike plants to thwart your plans, not to mention the dangers from other classes.
