Stray Plant Collectibles Locations Guide

Chapter 9 in Stray is called Antvillage. This chapter is short and sweet, but does feature a few collectibles for players to find and unlock. One collectible is three plants you need to find for Malo: Red, Purple, and Yellow. To help you find all three of these plants see our Stray plant collectibles locations guide below.

Speak to Zbaltazar so B-12 Helps Again

Speak to Zbaltazar so B-12 helps you again.

At the start of Antvillage B-12 remembers a memory. This makes him sad so he won’t feel like talking much. To get him to snap out of his funk make your way to the top of the village where Zbaltazar is meditating. Speak to Zbaltazar and B-12 will snap out of it, meaning he will collect things for you again including the three flowers we need.

You can gather the plants in any order you would like. The only requirement is to gather all three of them. With that said I will be guiding you from the bottom of the village and will work my way up to the top where Malo is located.

Red Plant Location

Make your way back down Antvillage to the very bottom where there are two robots playing Mahjong. Past them to the edge of the platform they are on and you will find a bucket elevator leading down. Go down the elevator and cross the pipes to reach two robots. Near where the robots are you will find the Red Plant. Pick it to add it to your inventory.

Purple Plant Location

Head past the Mahjong players and the robots in the bunk bed and you will find a tree to your left. Walk out on this tree and you will reach the Purple Plant. Pick it to add it to your inventory.

Yellow Plant Location

Go up to where Zbaltazar is meditating and head past him. Walk along the path so you reach the restaurant area. Go to the very end of this area and jump onto the pipe. Walk along the pipe to the end to reach the Yellow Plant. Pick it to add it to your inventory.

Deliver Plants to Malo

Once you’ve collected all of the plants listed above it’s time to deliver them. The NPC you want to speak to is Malo, who is located at the top of Antvillage above Zbaltazar. Speak to Malo and give the plants to receive the Plant Badge.
