The Red Plant-It is a galactic super-rare plant environment card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Mega-Grow class. It costs 5 to play, and its ability gives all plants in it +5/+5. This ability persists until The Red Plant-It is overridden by another environment.
Its name is a portmanteau of "the Red Planet," referring to its appearance, and "plant-it," referring to the potatoes on it.
- Class: Mega-Grow
- Tribe: Root Environment
- Ability: Plants here get +5/+5.
- Set - Rarity: Galactic - Super-Rare
It may seem an inhospitable place for Plants, but with a little TLC and some patience, it'll grow more than just potatoes. Much more.

This is a powerful environment that gives a plant in that environment a huge stat boost. And because it's an environment and not a trick, using plants with Team-Up increases their stats as well. Certain plants include Shroom for Two, Pair of Pears, or Poppin' Poppies to increase the damage output in that lane.
The only issue is that this is an expensive environment and if the zombie hero manages to save their brains, they can replace this environment with one of theirs, wasting the amount of sun you used. So it's best to use this if the zombie hero is dealing brute force to the plant hero, or if they wasted all their brains on zombies.
However, this environment can be played before or after a plant is played in it, which can be useful if you had played a powerful plant on board. This combo can work effectively with plants that have the Double Strike trait like Bananasaurus Rex to do lots of damage each combat. However, be aware against most instant-kill cards, especially from within the Brainy and Beastly classes.
This environment is very dangerous if there are two plants in that environment. This can end up dealing more than 10 damage to you if you don't take care of it. The two solutions from taking lots of damage are either placing one of your environments over it or using Rocket Science or Locust Swarm to destroy the strong plants in the environment. Alien Ooze can also be useful for weakening and possibly destroying the plants in this environment. If all else fails, resort to using Deadly zombies or Bouncing plants on that environment. It is advised to save your brains on turn 5 against a Mega-Grow hero, so you can quickly override this environment.
- It is currently the most expensive environment in the game.
- The term "TLC" mentioned in its description is an acronym for "tender loving care", which is "to be treated in a kind and caring way."
- In the development of Galactic Gardens, it was originally named "Peapod Planet."
