Plant Food is an item in Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time. It is fed to plants to give them more powerful effects and is dropped by glowing green zombies and the Power Lily. The player can carry three at a time or later upgrade to four at a time (or when the player pays an in-app purchase, even upgraded to five at a time). It is represented by the lights on a bar at the bottom of the screen. Note, however, that the effect is temporary, and plants will then resume to their normal forms. This does not apply to Wall-nut, Tall-nut, Torchwood, or anything that makes other plants, such as Potato Mine, Chili Bean, or their imitated forms.
