Stray: Plant locations

Learn where to find the yellow, red, and purple plants as you explore Antvillage in Stray.

At the top of Antvillage in Stray is a Companion called Malo looking to add certain plants to their collection. There are three plants to collect around and within Antvillage: you’ll need to find a Yellow Plant, Red Plant, and Purple Plant. In this guide we’ll walk you through the Plant locations in Stray so you can earn the Plant badge and make Malo happy.

The three Plants you need to find are all in and around Antvillage, though you will need to explore some less obvious areas. Below we’ll guide you to the Yellow Plant location, Red Plant location, and Purple Plant location so you can quickly find which ones you’re missing. If you’ve just reached Antvillage, you’ll need to head up to speak with Zbaltazar to ensure B-12 is feeling ready to interact and chat once again – you won’t be able to collect the plants until they have.

You can find the Yellow Plant in Stray on the same level as Zbaltazar. Once you’ve arrived and spoken with them, B-12 will perk up again. Follow the building around past Zbaltazar and their many screens until you reach a ramen store with a customer sitting outside. 

Head past them to the edge of the platform and you’ll find you can hop down on a pipe. A short walk along this will lead you to the Yellow Plant location. Grab it then turn back.

Red Plant location

To find the Red Plant location in Stray, head to the lower level with the two Companion robots playing Mahjong. You can jump on top of their game to earn a trophy/achievement, but the plant we’re looking for is behind them.

At the edge of the platform is a bucket pulley system you can jump in to ride down to the water below. Hope down onto the pipe and follow it to jump over some barrels to a small island with two scavenging robots. Hop onto the rusted refrigerator and you’ll find the Red Plant on a bush here. You can use the wooden stilts next to the pipe to climb back up to the village.

Purple Plant location

To find the Purple Plant in Stray, you need to be on the same level as the two mahjong-playing Companion robots once again. Follow the platform around to the left until you reach the segment with a robot sleeping on a couch and a Memory location to the right. 

Just before this section is a tree trunk growing out in a curve from the edge of the village. Approach closely and you can jump up onto the trunk and follow it up to reach the Purple Plant location.

Once you have all three Plants, climb back up to Malo on Antivillage’s upper levels. Hand them over and you’ll not only bring a smile to one robot’s face, you’ll also earn the Plant Badge as a reward.
