Plant Species Y is a plant in the Scorched Earth-DLC of ARK: Survival Evolved.

The Plant Species Y can be grown by putting Plant Species Y Seeds in a Large Crop Plot. The seeds can be found by harvesting desert plants.

Once fully grown, it produces Plant Species Y Traps similar to bear traps. Unlike the Plant Species X, it is not a defensive plant and can't shoot projectiles.

Production[edit | edit source]

The Plant Species Y grows the same as any other plot-based plant, consuming both water and fertilizer to grow, but unlike other plants, it consumes significantly less of both once it reaches maturity. One should monitor water levels when growing these plants indoors.

Plant Y takes 2:00 minutes to produce one Plant Species Y Traps (official servers rate) , In a greenhouse it takes up to 0:30 seconds to produce one (300% effect), If the Plant Species Y Traps in the plot reach up to 10, the Plant y will stop producing traps.

Each Plant Species Y Trap spoil in 59 minutes (official server rates), the spoil timer only exist on inventories, when placed in the floor it will just disappear if destroyed.

The Plant Y takes exact 10 hours (official server rates) to fully grow from the moment you plant the seed without a greenhouse. With a greenhouse (300% effect) takes only 2:30 Hours to fully grow from the moment you plant the seed.

* When a plant has its maximum of fruits, it needs less fertilizer. As the fruits spoil after some time, leaving the plant in a non-full state for some time, these numbers are rather theoretical maximums.
