Potato Mine is fairly similar to Bungee Plumber in that both can be used to destroy low health units. Potato Mine is also useful for absorbing a single hit for allied plants and protect them from powerful zombies, but keep in mind that this will not work against zombies with the PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy trait, unless the zombie has been destroyed before he/she can attack again. The same can be said of zombies with the PvZH Strikethrough IconStrikethrough trait, although the PvZH Strikethrough IconStrikethrough trait doesn't require a plant to be destroyed. However, as there are few zombies with such traits in the early-game, it is best to play this early on.

Spineapple can also be used to give Potato Mine a strength boost, allowing it to destroy a zombie with 4 health or less on its own.

Potato Mine can also be useful to protect a lane against a Gravestone zombie because it blocks the zombie's attack and destroys that zombie if it has 2 health or less. Using this against a zombie with 2 health almost secures that the zombie be destroyed, as any form of damage or destruction done to Potato Mine will activate its ability.

Against Arm Wrestler, you need to play a plant with at least 2 strength behind it.


When the plant hero places this plant on a lane with a zombie, use Sumo Wrestler, Terrify or Rodeo Gargantuar to move it away, and just like Prickly Pear, this plant's ability can only deal damage to the zombie fighters, not the zombie hero, so destroying it when there are no zombies on its lane is a good idea; Rolling Stone, Weed Spray, The Chickening or Conga Zombie are good options for doing this.

PvZH Armored IconArmored zombies, especially the Knight of the Living Dead, are also good choices as they absorb the damage from Potato Mine's ability. If a Potato Mine is placed in front of another plant, the best way of dealing with it is by using Shielded zombies such as Trash Can Zombie or Zombie Coach, as they will destroy the Potato Mine without taking any damage from it or the plant behind it. In last resort scenarios, boosting a zombie's stats with Vitamin Z or other tricks can help to survive Potato Mine.

  • Every time the light on top of the Potato Mine flashes, a timer-like sound will be heard.
  • When it explodes, it says "SPUD-OW!" instead of "SPUDOW!" as it does in Plants vs. Zombies and Plants vs. Zombies 2.
  • Despite potatoes being scientifically classified as underground stems, Potato Mine is part of the root tribe.
