The popcorn plant is a red pod attached to a black stem that is reminiscent of a stalk of corn. When an unopened popcorn plant is struck with a spear, it will peel open and its contents will pop into activity. Each time the opened pod is interacted with, it will fill one food pip of the slugcat. The popcorn plant will provide a limitless supply of food until the slugcat hibernates. The cycle after the popcorn plant was opened, the plant will appear withered and is no longer edible. A few cycles later, the plant will regenerate its fruit and sheath, ready to be opened again.
