ZomBotany 2 is the seventeenth mini-game in Plants vs. Zombies, Plants vs. Zombies: Journey to the West, and Plants vs. Zombies: Great Wall Edition. It is a more challenging and difficult version of ZomBotany. It is mainly known for the plant and zombie hybrids. Unlike its predecessor, the events of ZomBotany 2 unfold in a Pool setting instead of a Day setting.

All ZomBotany Zombies also have the Ducky Tube versions, with the exception of Squash Zombie.

See ZomBotany for more trivia.
  • If the player hypnotizes a Peashooter Zombie or a Gatling Pea Zombie, it will still shoot at his or her plants through the back of its head. However, it will eat other zombies.
    • If the player hypnotizes a Jalapeno Zombie, it will explode once it leaves the screen and destroys the player's plants, despite being a friendly comrade.
  • It and Air Raid both use Gatling Pea and they can still be accessed without buying it from Crazy Dave's shop.
  • Despite having about the same health as a Gargantuar, a Tall-nut Zombie can be instantly defeated by a Chomper. A Cherry Bomb, Jalapeno, Doom-shroom, Squash, or Potato Mine will cause 1800 damage but will not completely kill it. It shares this trait with the giga version of Football Zombie.
    • When a Cherry Bomb, Jalapeno, Doom-shroom, Squash, or Potato Mine try to instant kill it, its head will not have any degrades, despite losing 1800 health.
  • Even though freezing Peashooter Zombies with Ice-shrooms or butter prevents them from shooting peas, slowing them down with Snow Peas, Winter Melons, or the residue left behind by Ice-shrooms do not hamper that ability.
  • Editing this mini-game's data file (32.dat) to a separate file makes ambush zombies appear in the pool. These ambush zombies are always Ducky Tube Zombies.
  • Apparently, the zombies' instant kills are stronger than that of the plants' instant kills, since the Squash Zombie can kill the Tall-nut in one hit while the Squash requires two hits to kill the Tall-nut Zombie. However, the Jalapeno and the Jalapeno Zombie are exceptions, since they can kill themselves in only one hit.
  • In the iPad version, the Gatling Pea Zombie's head looks like it is floating off the body, with a stem supporting the head.
    • This may be because the developers may have put a normal zombie in the icon, and thus they replaced the image of the zombie's head with a Gatling Pea.
  • In the icon for the iPad version, it shows a Jalapeno Zombie and a Gatling Pea Zombie at night, even though the mini-game takes place in the Pool.
  • According to LawnStrings, this mini-game's original name was going to be "War and Peas 2", with "War and Peas" mostly likely being a pun on "War and Peace."
    • Also, a box with the words "War and Peas" is visible in Crazy Dave's Twiddydinkies.
  • In the iPhone and Android icons for this mini-game, it has Gatling Pea Zombie instead of Peashooter Zombie on it.
  • However, the Gatling Pea Zombie's head is, as stated earlier, floats off the body with a visible stem. It also has no eyebrows.
  • There is a glitch that upon restarting many times, there is a chance that Jalapeno Zombies will not appear. There is also a similar glitch in Buttered Popcorn where Gargantuars will not appear if the level is restarted many times.
