How to Make Plant in Little Alchemy 2

Earth is the only planet within the solar system currently known to have the capability of supporting complex life. The reason? It has a unique combination of specific elements and conditions related to its distance from the Sun, the amount of liquid water on the surface, and other factors.

Plants are one example of complex life on Earth, which is why “Little Alchemy 2” doesn’t allow you to throw together a few basic elements like Earth and Water to make the Plant element. Instead, you’re given 10 different methods to explore in the game:

1. Give Life to the World

Plants are living things, which means that they can’t exist without life. Scientists believe that one-way life might have originally started on Earth is in bodies of water from a combination of certain chemicals and one or more transformative energy sources.

As a result, one of the ways to make the Plant element in “Little Alchemy 2” is to start by creating the Life element. 

You can quickly create Life using combinations of water-based elements like Lake, Sea, or Ocean with elements of power like Lightning.

If you don’t already have Lake, Sea, or Ocean, perform these combinations:

  • Water + Water = Puddle
  • Puddle + Puddle = Pond
  • Pond + Pond = Lake
  • Lake + Lake = Sea
  • Sea + Sea = Ocean

If you don’t have the Lightning element, perform these combinations:

  • Earth + Earth = Land
  • Land + Land = Continent
  • Continent + Continent = Planet
  • Planet + Air = Atmosphere
  • Atmosphere + Water = Cloud
  • Cloud + Cloud = Storm
  • Storm + Land = Lightning

The Lightning element icon is a golden lightning bolt and the words “When clouds try to be flashy.”

Now that you have these elements, drag and drop Lightning on Lake, Sea or Ocean. The Life icon, an image of colorful DNA, RNA, and “It finds a way,” pop up on the screen.

2. Add Life to the Soil

Once you have the Life element, you need it to combine it with a plant-related element. You might think that the obvious answer is the Seed element. Yet, not every plant comes from a seed. You actually need a Plant to make the Seed element. 

Soil is the only element that you can use with Life to make Plant. Before you can proceed, you need to make Soil, which also requires the Life element:

The Soil icon appears onscreen as two-toned, speckled dirt plopped onto the ground with the words “The organic scalp of the Earth where plants, not hair, grows.”

Now that you have Soil, you can drop Life on it to make Plant. A stem with two leaves and the words “The original solar-powered organism” pop up on the screen.

3. Alternative Methods for Making Plant

You can only make a Plant in “Little Alchemy 2” by combining elements that are related somehow to plants in the real world. For example, you can combine the plant-related Tree with the idea of Small or Grass with Big.

Yet, in each of these cases, you must already have Plant and idea-based elements that you acquire later in the game. You can also make a Plant by combining Algae with Earth or Land or Seed with Earth, Land, Soil, or Water, but you again need the Plant element to make these types of plants first.

The remaining options involve using your newly collected Soil element. You can combine it with your new Life element. You can also combine it with the Rain element. If you don’t already have Rain, combine the following elements:

  • Earth + Earth = Land
  • Land + Land = Continent
  • Continent + Continent = Planet
  • Planet + Air = Atmosphere
  • Atmosphere + Water = Cloud
  • Cloud + Water = Rain

When you create Rain, a rain cloud with “Tears of the clouds” pops up onscreen.

What Grows From Plant in “Little Alchemy 2”?

Although plants make the surface of the world more interesting and beautiful, they do more than provide decorative enjoyment. Plants are critical to the continuation of life on Earth.

Without plants, humans and a lot of other life forms would die because they wouldn’t have enough oxygen to breathe since plants absorb harmful carbon dioxide from the air and release oxygen back into it. 

A variety of plants, including many fruits and vegetables, provide nutritious meals to animals. If our planet didn’t have plants, fruit and vegetable gardens also wouldn’t exist or the agricultural farmers needed to grow these plants as food for the masses.

Without plants, cats would never enjoy catnip, squirrels would never climb trees, and children and adults would never know the joy of carving a pumpkin into a Jack-O-Lantern. 

In “Little Alchemy 2,” you can directly make more than 30 additional elements from Plant:

  • Plant + Night = Carbon Dioxide
  • Plant + Carbon Dioxide = Oxygen
  • Plant + Sun = Oxygen & Sunflower
  • Plant + Dawn = Dew
  • Plant + Fog = Dew

  • Plant + Sea = Seaweed
  • Plant + Ocean = Seaweed
  • Plant + Cat = Catnip
  • Plant + Earth = Grass
  • Plant + Land = Grass
  • Plant + Boulder = Moss
  • Plant + Rock = Moss
  • Plant + Stone = Moss
  • Plant + Swamp = Peat & Reed
  • Plant + Puddle = Reed
  • Plant + Pond = Reed
  • Plant + River = Reed
  • Plant + Big = Tree
  • Plant + Time = Tree
  • Plant + Wood = Tree
  • Plant + Tree = Forest
  • Plant + Dust = Pollen
  • Plant + Wind = Pollen
  • Plant + Pollen = Seed
  • Plant + Desert = Cactus
  • Plant + Sand = Cactus
  • Plant + Cloud = Cotton
  • Plant + Sheep = Cotton
  • Plant + Fabric = Cotton
  • Plant + Thread = Cotton
  • Plant + Wool = Cotton
  • Plant + Human = Farmer
  • Plant + Farmer = Vegetable
  • Plant + Field = Vegetable
  • Plant + Domestication = Vegetable
  • Plant + Fruit = Fruit Tree
  • Plant + Jack-O-Lantern = Pumpkin
  • Plant + Mouse = Squirrel
  • Plant + Flower = Garden
  • Plant + Grass = Garden
  • Plant + House = Garden
  • Plant + Lawn = Garden
  • Plant + Garden = Flower
  • Plant + Rainbow = Flower
  • Plant + Double Rainbow! = Flower
  • Plant + Blade = Rose
  • Plant + Love = Rose
  • Plant + Fence = Hedge
  • Plant + Wall = Hedge & Ivy
  • Plant + Bottle = Vase
  • Plant + Pottery = Vase
  • Plant + Aquarium = Greenhouse
  • Plant + Container = Greenhouse
  • Plant + Glass = Greenhouse
  • Plant + Fire = Ash & Smoke & Tobacco
  • Plant + Smoke = Tobacco
  • Plant + Deity = Green Man

Explore a Cornucopia of Plants

As you have seen, the Earth is teeming with plants and things associated with them. In “Little Alchemy 2,” the list of elements associated with plants doesn’t end with the ones outlined above.

You can discover and collect many more plant-related elements. With grass, for example, your collection can grow to include Ant, Carrot, Cow, Fence, Hay, Lawn, Lawn Mower, Park, Picnic, Scythe, and Wheat.

If you explore Tree, you can discover dozens of related elements, including Bonsai Tree, Christmas Tree, Family Tree, Fruit, Leaf, Nuts, Sap, Wood, Nest, Palm, Swamp, Ash, Charcoal, Smoke, Monkey, Sloth, Woodpecker, Dam, Beehive, Treehouse and Lumberjack.

You can even find the Norse sacred tree of life and the universe known as Yggdrasil and the Greek tree spirit called the Dryad.
