The Strange plant is a random event that triggers causing a strange plant to start growing near a player. The player must wait until the plant is fully grown before they can pick the Strange fruit. The player can pick the fruit or just dismiss the plant.
Previously, the plant would attack and poison the player if ignored for too long. However, since the Optional Randoms update, the plant will no longer harm the player if ignored.
A strange plant becomes aggressive after ignoring it.
