After beating Kung-Fu World - Day 3

Bamboo Shoot (竹笋) is a plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time. When a zombie is within four tiles in front of it, it will hide in the ground and start attacking by spinning back and forth. It cannot be eaten by zombies. However, any rolling zombie can run it over, destroying it in the process (like Spikeweed). Gargantuars are also able to destroy Bamboo Shoots by crushing the starting point of the Bamboo Shoot.

Plant Food Upgrade

Bamboo Shoot will hit the last zombies in each line (and any zombies very close to it). If they have low enough health, they will be flung off the screen.

Bamboo Shoot was born out of the ground and learned earth Kung-Fu, and went into a state of reform, he used his earth martial arts to learn farming.



  • As it is burried into earth, it cannot be planted on wooden planks in Pirate Seas. It shares this trait with Potato MineWhite Radish, FlyswatterSmall Bamboo Cage, Carrot Launcher, etc.
    • However, it can still travel on to the planks when attacking, despite still being underground.
  • It is bound to a line, so it cannot be planted on mine carts in Wild West. So far, it's the only plant that cannot be planted on a mine cart.
  • This and Citron are the only plants that can toss away zombies with their Plant Food ability.
