Mystery Sprout in the Zen Garden

Mystery Sprout is a type of sprout that randomly turns into a plant the player may not have. The player can buy them from Crazy Dave's Twiddydinkies on the iOS versions of Plants vs. Zombies. In the shop they look like presents, but they have different colors than the regular presents. When the player purchases one, a plant automatically appears in the Zen Garden.

Types

Mystery Sprout

It randomly turns into a plant, so the chance of it turning into a plant the player does not have yet depends on how many plants are currently in his or her Zen Garden. It costs $7,500 in Crazy Dave's Twiddydinkies.

Bronze Mystery Sprout

Has a 25% chance of turning into any plant the player does not have in his/her Zen Garden yet. It costs $15,000 in Crazy Dave's Twiddydinkies.

Silver Mystery Sprout

Has a 50% chance of turning into any plant the player does not have in his/her Zen Garden yet. It costs $30,000 in Crazy Dave's Twiddydinkies.

Gold Mystery Sprout

Has a 100% chance of turning into any plant the player does not have in his/her Zen Garden yet. It costs $50,000 in Crazy Dave's Twiddydinkies.

Mystery Sprout math

Because the chance of getting a plant the player does not have yet is random, the expected cost of getting a new plant depends on how many plants he or she currently has.
