How to Get a Cow Plant in The Sims 4 & Grow It in Your Garden


The strange looking but oh-so-amazing cow plant makes a return in The Sims 4! And since getting a Cow Plant in the Sims 4 is different from the previous iteration, we are here to teach you just that: how to get a cow plant in The Sims 4. We won’t include a dozen of free Sims to feed them to it, though – you’re on your own here!

I was saying that getting the Cow Plant is a bit different in the new game: it’s no longer available as an unlockable career or aspiration reward. Instead, you have to look for seeds on yourself – and it won’t be easy!

Right now, there is one single confirmed location that gives you a chance to get a Cow Plant seed, but there are probably more too. However, here is the confirmed method: you have to go fishing! Don’t fish anywhere, though! Instead, head over to the Desert Bloom lot in Oasis Springs and find the small pond behind the rock canyon. That’s where you have to start fishing and eventually you will be rewarded with the rare Laganaphyllis Simnovorii seed aka the Cow Plant seed.

The Cow Plant has to be taken good care of in order to get the most out of it: after planting the seed, you have to water it daily until it reaches adult size. As a guideline if it needs watering or not, if the dirt at the base of the plant is light brown, it needs water.

Once the Cow Plant grows to adult size, it can feed with whole Sims who are fooled by it’s cake-like tongue. Pretty creepy, I know, but it does produce rejuvenating milk which you can use to… well… rejuvenate your Sim! Here’s a short video of the Cow Plant in action in The Sims 4:

And this ends our guide. Don’t forget to let us know by commenting below if you were able to find the Cow Plant in a different location than the one mentioned by us!
