Once you have the cowberry plant in your inventory, all you have to do is drag it from there and plant it anywhere you want in your garden or in a planter. There are three growth stages of a cow plant –

  • Horns
  • Stem
  • Full Grown plant

Growing a cow plant doesn’t require you to achieve a specific gardening skill level, but it’d be beneficial to have some skills before you go ahead with planting the cow plant

There are several interactions that you can do with your cow plant once it has fully grown, such as play, feed, milk, pet, eat cake, etc. The cow plant would become hungry every 12 hours, and if you don’t feed it, it will stick out its tongue in the shape of a cake to lure sims.

Children can’t eat this cake. If you’re unable to feed your plant for 24 hours, it will become a skeleton. If you’re wondering what do cowplants eat? Then let us inform you that you can feed your plant meat to keep them from being hungry. 

If a sim decides to eat the cake, then the cow plant would either swallow the sim and spit them out or eat them up. In case the plant spits the sim out, they’ll feel uncomfortable for three days and might even start fearing cow plants.

However, the sim that has been spat out would leave a cowplant essence of the mood they were in prior to being swallowed by the cow plant. Your sim can milk the plant to drink that essence to gain that mood whenever they want. If your sim’s swallowed twice, they’ll eventually die. 

In case the cow plant devours your sim, they’ll leave behind an essence of life, which would increase a few days in your sim’s life if they drink it. The grim reaper would visit you once the sim’s dead, and a tombstone would be placed. 

Sims can also collect a sample from the cow plant when they reach level 2 or higher in the logic skill and inspect that sample using a microscope. Once they do so, they’ll receive a unique painting to decorate their wall. 


What is the point of cowplant Sims 4?

The reason why simmers want to grow a cow plant is to gain the essence of life when their cow plant eats up a sim. The essence of life would increase your sim’s lifespan by a few days and also make them happy. They can also receive a potion through which they’d gain the mood that the sim which the plant ate was in.

How do you get eaten by a cowplant?

A cow plant will only eat a sim if they’ve not been fed for more than 24 hours. If the cow plant’s hungry, they’ll dangle a cake to attract the sims and then devour them. But the first time, it’d spit them out, and if they get eaten a second time, then the plant would eat it up.


As I said earlier, cow plant’s are quite a desired plant species in the Sims game because it offers several benefits to the players. We hope this guide on cowplant Sims 4 helped you understand where and how to find these plants and their mechanism. It’s pretty fun to have a cow plant in your garden and to make a cowplant Sims 4 or finding them isn’t that difficult once you know the process.
