|Unlocked||Beating Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum - Level 8-1|
Sod (草垛; pinyin: cǎo duǒ) is a plant and a environment modifier in Plants vs. Zombies Online. It is obtained in Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum. Like the Lily Pad and Flower Pot, it allows other plants to be planted on it, acting as an extension plant. It can only be planted on unsodded paths.
Do what you would when using a Flower Pot or a Lily Pad. However, keep in mind that you can plant ground plants, such as Potato Mine on it. Planting Wall-nuts on it can help to protect your Sods as well as the other plants behind it, as Hawker Carts will appear in these lanes and will release their Zombie Piggies every five seconds. Avoid planting Spikeweed or Spikerock on it, as when Sod is eaten up by a zombie, they will disappear along with it.
- It might be possible that this plant was inspired by the Plants vs. Zombies canceled mini-game Unsodded.
- It is the only non-instant-use plant to not have a Plant Food ability.
- It is one of the two plants that can be planted on pathways directly. The first is the Winter Melon.
- Sod is the third plant to serve the purpose of a planting base for other plants, after Lily Pad and Flower Pot.
- Sod and Winter Melon do not appear in Adventure Mode, and are the only plants introduced in Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum to have this trait.
