Sims can become PlantSims by eating a Forbidden Fruit, a special item that is obtained by accessing the Mystical Beanstalk Portal Tree. The challenge asks Sims to collect seven magic beans:

  • naughty
  • Confident
  • Sad
  • Uncomfortable
  • Tense
  • Mischievous
  • Angry

You can find these Magic Beans from random PlantSims that have occasionally spawned in each neighborhood. They must then call Jasmine Holiday, a challenge coordinator, in order to obtain a magic stump and place the six magic beans in it. Sims can then water the stump to become the “Mystical Magic Bean Portal Tree”. Upon entering the tree, Sims will obtain the Forbidden Fruit by answering correctly during a short text adventure. Once they have obtained the fruit, Sims can eat it and become PlantSims or plant it and grow more forbidden fruit (which can be eaten). Once eaten they will be a PlantSim for 5 days.

Beans can now be found in rare seed packets, available when you reach gardening skill level 10, and the stump can be purchased in build mode.


PlantSims have two different needs than normal Sims: water (which replaces the need for the bladder) and a special need for hunger, which can be met by exposure to sunlight. They also have special moods for being in the sun or water, which increases their happiness.


PlantSims can talk to plants to replenish their social need and can absorb solar energy from plants to replenish their special hunger pattern.

This does not appear to affect the Sim’s hair or clothing. This is only a temporary cosmetic effect and the affected Sim will have no special needs.

You can also turn your Sims into PlantSim through cheats if you don’t want to go through the process of finding and finding magic beans. There are two ways to do this:

Method 1

The first thing you will need to do if you want your sim to become a plantsim is to get them to level 10 of the gardening skill. Indeed, you have to buy the rare seed packets which are only available if you have level 10.

You can do this while gardening or just cheat to access the gardening skill by opening the cheat box with ctrl+alt+C and typing true cheat test to make sure your tricks work, then type stats.set_skill_level major_gardening X and replace the X with the number 10.

You can then purchase the rare seed packets either by ordering seed packets on the computer or by finding them in build mode. You might have to spend a lot of money to do this, since a packet of rare seeds costs §1000 and you can only get one magic bean each time.

You must also purchase the Magic PlantSim Strain and when you have collected the 6 magic beans, you put them in this stump. When you water the magic stump, you will see a tree grow and you can enter the tree and collect the Fruit of Plantsim. Eating this fruit will automatically turn your sim into a plantsim.

Method 2

For this method you need to enable cheats by opening the cheat bar with ctrl+alt+c and using real cheat testingcheats to enable cheat codes. Then you can hit gap then click on your sim and you will get the option to transform into PlantSim and your sim will be instantly transformed into plantsim.
