As Pea Pod gradually gains stats over time, it can prove to be a powerful card if the player can play it early in the game and give it an adequate amount of protection. Its weakness, however, also revolves around its lack of utility early game: it takes 2 turns for Pea Pod to reach the 2StrengthPvZH/2HeartPvZH for 1SunPvZH standard created by Morning Glory, and the great amount of care required for protecting it can backfire if the enemy happens to have efficient removals such as Rocket Science or Rolling Stone. Fortunately, the Mega-Grow class has access to Umbrella Leaf, which can make it UntrickableAltBigUntrickable, rendering said tricks useless.

Allowing Pea Pod to survive will yield the best results, so protecting it with a defensive plant is a great choice. Using Torchwood in tandem along with tricks like Fertilize will make this plant do a whopping amount of damage, possibly enough to end the game pretty early if you play it well.

Each Mega-Grow hero generally has an effective way to protect Pea Pod besides boosting it:

Potted Powerhouse can be a great partner for Pea Pod, as it gets bonus stats each turn while it is in your hand. What is also notable is that even after it has self-boosted 4 times (so that it has 5 heads; see Trivia), it will still keep on growing.


Tricks are the player's best bet to destroy this, especially if its health increases. Destroying this early while its health is still low should be a priority. Using tricks such as Bungee Plumber or The Chickening should help. Bouncing it also works, as its stats will be reset. If you have Rolling Stone, use it on Pea Pod when it is still weak. If this plant gets out of control, use instant-kill cards like Rocket Science or Locust Swarm. Cut Down to Size is a cheap option if the plant has over 5 strength. If you are playing as a PvZH Sneaky IconSneaky hero, zombies with the PvZH Deadly IconDeadly trait are also an option.

  • Its head growth is similar to the level 2 ability of the Pea Pod from the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2.
  • Its description is a reference to the idiom, "peas in a pod."
  • Even though it has only one head in its statistics, it has five heads on its card and in the Rank 9 profile picture.
  • It can grow up to 5 heads like in Plants vs. Zombies 2. However, even after it grows all its heads, it still plays the same animation and still activates its ability every other turn afterwards.
  • Unlike its counterpart in Plants vs. Zombies 2, it does not have leaves under its pods.
