Four tiles with Dave's mold colonies on them

Dave's mold colonies are green chunks of mold in Plants vs. Zombies 2 that appear on certain tiles. They only appear in levels where one of the requirements is to not plant on them. In the current version, it is impossible to plant on them so they cannot directly cause the loss of a level. However, before the 1.7 update, they could be planted on, which would result in the loss of a star received from not planting of them.

  • In earlier versions, plants which multiply themselves under Plant Food (such as Potato Mine and Chili Bean) could land on a mold colony and not disable the objective.
    • In newer versions, it is impossible for them to land on a mold colony. If there is no room left on the lawn other than on mold colonies, they simply will not spawn.
  • When the player completes a level with them, the mold colonies will start jumping. The player will hear a squishing sound while the mold colonies are jumping.
    • They can also hide if the player hovers a plant over them.
