This page offers a guide on Piantas in Need, which is the sixth episode in Pianta Village.

Free the Piantas

In this episode, you’ll need to free ten piantas from the burning goop in three minutes or less. The goop is cleaned up easily using your spray nozzle and then you’ll also need to clean the ooze off of the Piantas as well. You can use your hover nozzle as well, but the spray nozzle is much quicker at doing the job. The bigger goop puddles are easy to spot and there should be at least one Pianta in each one but here is a run down of where to find the goop puddles:

  • Once you’ve crossed the bridge, you’ll find four puddles to your right. The largest goop puddle, found between the two toadstools has two piantas in it! In this puddles you can get 5/10 of the Piantas.

In this section of the village, you'll be able to save half of the Piantas!

  • To the left, near the houses, you’ll find another smaller puddle beneath a toadstool. Then, behind one of the houses nearby you should be able to spot another goop pile. At this stage you should have 7/10 Piantas.

  • Head up the path that goes to the left and you can find another large pile of goop. Follow the path around past the bath and you should be able to spot another ooze puddle on the path to the right. And finally, head back down the path towards the village and turn left towards the pond to reach the last puddle of ooze. Once you’ve saved 10/10 Piantas, the timer will stop.

The goop puddles are easy to spot so this episode is fairly straight forward!

You should be able to do this episode in around two minutes, so you shouldn’t feel pressed for time. Head back to the Mayor on the other side of the bridge to complete the episode and earn your Shine Sprite.
