Sea-shroom has never seen the sea. It's in his name, he's heard loads about it, but he's just never found the time. One day, though, it'll go down.

Sea-shroom is the 25th plant unlocked in Plants vs. Zombies. It performs almost identically to Puff-shroom, but has a slower recharge rate and can only be planted on water tiles in the Pool and Fog levels.


Sea-shroom is based of the plant of the same name. The sea in it's name refers to the fact that it can only be planted in water, and the shroom in its name refers to the fact that it is a mushroom.

Sea-shrooms are aquatic plants that shoot short ranged spores.

Damage: normal
Range: short
Must be planted in water
Sleeps during the day

Cost: 0

Recharge: slow


Due to it being highly similar with Puff-shroom, Sea-shroom shares a role with Puff-shroom as a "cannon fodder," a highly disposable plant meant to be placed and eaten in great numbers. Sea-shroom's performance in this role however is much more limited, as the plant has a slow recharge rate and cannot be planted on land. Furthermore, the lack of dangerous zombies on pool lanes reduces the necessity to use Sea-shroom as a makeshift wall; on the other hand, this also means that Sea-shroom's limited firepower output can remain useful for a longer period of time compared to Puff-shroom's.

While Imitater can be used to remedy Sea-shroom's recharge problem, this is not recommended since this deprives the player of a cooldown reduction for potentially more useful plants. However, Sea-shroom can also be used to trick Dolphin Rider Zombie into jumping early and losing its dolphin in the process.

It is not advised to use Coffee Bean on this on Pool levels. Instead, use Lily-pad and a stronger plant. Similarly, don't use Lily-pad with Puff-shroom on Fog levels. Use this instead.

In Java version of the game, it has fast recharge (same as Puff-shroom), so it can be use as the only plant needed to protect the water lanes.

  • It is the only plant with a Fog background in its Suburban Almanac entry.
    • A similar situation occurs with Flower Pot, which is the only plant with a Roof background.
  • It seems to have approximately the same height as a Puff-shroom. However, it can be hit by Peashooter Zombies' and Gatling Pea Zombies' peas, while they just pass over Puff-shroom.
    • This is because the bodies of the Peashooter Zombies and Gatling Pea Zombies are partially in the water, which means their heads are lower on the surface on the water than on ground.
  • While not stated in any known sources, it appears to be inspired by the real-life species Psathyrella aquatica, which also has never been observed growing in the ocean.
  • In the online Almanac entry, it is floating over the grass even though it is aquatic. The same goes for all the other aquatic plants.
  • In some versions of Plants vs. Zombies, its spores are invisible.
  • It can be watered or fertilized in the Mushroom Garden as well as the Aquarium Garden.
    • This makes it the only mushroom that can be watered or fertilized in two different gardens as the other mushrooms (unless fed chocolate) would sleep in other locations.
  • When placed in the Aquarium garden, its roots are visible, and they resemble tentacles.
    • In certain versions, such as the iOS version, this is not the case, and its roots are still somehow covered.
  • In the Game of the Year version, its body can be purple sometimes.
