Slime Rancher 2 – The Complete Food Guide

Slime Rancher 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to Monomi Park’s charming slime farming sim. Beatrix LeBeau has packed up her slime-wrangling gear and has crossed the Slime Sea to the irridescent Rainbow Island, a new place packed with new mysteries and new slimes. As Beatrix attempts to unravel the island’s secrets and uncover its true purpose, she’ll build, ranch, and farm within a beautiful conservatory, whose sparkling glass walls give her full view of the prismatic paradise she now calls home.

With everything new and old to look at we’re breaking it down to the basics of any rancher. Food to feed your slimes. Here’s everything you’ll need to know about food, where to find them, how to harvest and more! In our Slime Rancher 2 food guide.

Slime Rancher 2 is out now on the Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Series X|S and PC – SteamEpic Games Store.

Note: Slime Rancher 2 was released on Early Access on the 22nd of September 2022. This guide will be updated as the game updates.

Veggies

Carrot

Favourite Food: None
Location: The Archway, Rainbow Fields, Ember Valley, Starlight Strand
Decay Time: 36 Hours
Growable: Yes. x20 Harvest

The Carrot is the most common and most accessible vegetable in Slime Rancher, and is very helpful for feeding veg-eating slimes, such as the Cotton Slime or Rock Slime. However because no Slime favors it, it will never produce double the number of Plorts produced.

For this reason, it may be unwise to grow Carrots unless you don’t yet have access to favoured foods. However, due to its large harvest yield, it may be suitable to burn and make ash for Fire Slimes.

 

Heart Beet

Favourite Food: Rock Slime
Location: Ember Valley, Starlight Strand
Decay Time: 36 Hours
Growable: Yes. x15 Harvest

The consistency of the Heart Beets’ growth and harvest yield makes Rock Slimes a decent choice for converting harder-to-feed or more valuable Slimes into Largos.

 

Odd Onion

Favourite Food: Crystal Slime
Location: Ember Valley
Decay Time: 36 Hours
Growable: Yes. x? Variable Harvest.

Odd Onions can be found sporadically around Ember Valley but you’ll be unable to grow a dedicated Odd Onion patch at home. If you plant an Odd Onion, there is no guarantee it will also grow to be an Odd Onion.

Instead, Odd Onions have a chance to grow in Carrot and Heart Beet patches. Due to the relatively small amount of Odd Onions that grow per harvest, it would probably be wise to convert Crystal Slimes into Largos with a favoured food that is easier to grow.

 

Water Lettuce

Favourite Food: Cotton Slime
Location: Rainbow Fields, Starlight Strand
Decay Time:
Growable: Yes

The Water Lettuce bears a visual resemblance to Red Cabbage, although its name suggests it’s closer to red lettuce.

 

Meat

Briar Hen

Favourite Food: Boom Slime
Location: Ember Valley. Rare Spawn.
Growable: Yes

Briar Hens are the most common and most widely available Meat in the game. Briar Hens are often found by nests accompanied by their Chickadoo counterparts and occasionally a Roostro.

Briar Hens in close proximity to Roostros will periodically lay eggs that produce Chickadoos. However, keeping too many chickens in close proximity makes them anxious and egg production will come to a halt.

 

Chickadoo

Favourite Food: Not Edible
Location: Everywhere
Growable: Yes (6 Hours)

Chickadoos spawn from nests with Hens. They can be produced domestically in a coop by a Hen if it is in the presence of a Roostro, and will itself grow up into a Hen or – more rarely – a Roostro. Chickadoos of all varieties will never be eaten by slimes. Until it grows up (6 in-game hours), Slimes will not eat it.

 

Hen Hen

Favourite Food: None
Location: Rainbow Fields. Common Spawn.
Growable: Yes

Hen Hens are the most common and most widely available Meat in Slime Rancher. Hen Hens are often found by nests accompanied by their Chickadoo counterparts and occasionally a Roostro.

Hen Hens in close proximity to Roostros will periodically lay eggs that produce Chickadoos. However, keeping too many chickens in close proximity makes them anxious and egg production will come to a halt.

 

Elder Hen

Favourite Food: None
Location:
Growable: Yes

Elder Hens are what all Hens, regardless of what type they were originally, have a chance of degrading into after producing a Chickadoo. Every time a Hen lays an egg they have a chance to become an Elder Hen. They can no longer lay eggs in this state. They can be fed to Slimes, though no Slime favours them.

 

Roostro

Favourite Food: Hunter Slime
Location: Southwest of Rainbow Island. Uncommon Spawn.
Growable: Yes

Roostros are an uncommon chicken spawned from nests, maturing chicks and crates. Roostros are necessary for hens to begin producing eggs which immediately hatch into chicks. This process is more efficient in a coop, especially when upgraded.

It’s recommended that you have at least 2-3 Roostros in your Coops. Since if they become old, the hens will stop making eggs. Due to their rarity, it is not recommended to feed Roostros to Hunter Slimes.

 

Elder Roostro

Favourite Food: None
Location:
Growable: Yes

Elder Roostro are what all Roostro, regardless of what type they were originally, have a chance of degrading into after producing a Chickadoo. Roostros have a low chance of turning elder after producing a chickadoo with a hen. They can no longer reproduce in this state. They can be fed to Slimes, though no Slime favours them.

 

Sea Hen

Favourite Food: Angler Slime
Location: Rare Spawn.
Growable: Yes

Sea Hens in close proximity to Roostros will periodically lay eggs that produce Sea Chickadoos. However, keeping too many chickens in close proximity makes them anxious and egg production will come to a halt.

 

Stony Hen

Favourite Food: Tabby Slime
Location: Rainbow Fields, Ember Valley. Rare Spawn.
Growable: Yes

Stony Hens are a chicken variant found by nests accompanied by their chickadoo counterparts and occasionally a Roostro, but can also be found in crates, and offered as a reward on the Range Exchange.

Stony Hens in close proximity to Roostros will periodically lay eggs that produce Stony Chickadoos. However, keeping too many chickens in close proximity makes them anxious and egg production will come to a halt.

 

Fruit

Cuberry

Favourite Food: Phosphor Slime
Location: Rainbow Fields
Decay Time: 36 Hours
Growable: Yes. x15 Harvest

Cuberries grow consistently with a decent harvest yield, so converting harder-to-feed Slimes to Phosphor Largos is a decent choice for the Ranch.

 

Mint Mango

Favourite Food: Honey Slime
Location: Starlight Strand
Decay Time: 36 Hours
Growable: Yes. x15 Harvest

Mint Mangoes are found in the same areas as Honey Slimes. Mint Mangoes grow consistently, have a decent harvest yield and the Honey Plorts are fairly valuable, if you’re looking to rake in those plorts Honey Largos are going to be your best bet.

 

Phase Lemon

Favourite Food: Quantum Slime
Location:
Decay Time: 36 Hours
Growable: Yes. x15 Harvest

Phase Lemons are unusual because they cannot be acquired simply by sucking them off the tree with the Vacpack, due to being out of phase with the world. Shooting a fruit into the tree when the lemons are ripe will cause them to phase into reality and fall to the ground, making it possible to collect them. This causes the fruit fired into the tree to be lost.

After acquiring a Phase Lemon they can be planted in a farm plot to create a tree that can be harvested normally using the Vacpack, which is far easier than having to track them down at their constantly changing locations in the wild.

 

Pogofruit

Favourite Food: None
Location: Everywhere
Decay Time: 36 Hours
Growable: Yes. x20 Harvest

The Pogofruit is the most common and most accessible fruit in Slime Rancher and is very helpful for feeding Fruit-eating slimes, such as The Phosphor Slime or the Honey Slime. However because no Slime favours it, it will never produce double the number of Plorts.

For this reason, it may be unwise to grow Pogofruits unless you don’t yet have access to favoured foods. However, due to its large harvest yield, it may be suitable to burn and make ash for Fire Slimes.

 

Pomegranite

Favourite Food: Batty Slime
Location: Starlight Strand – Caves, Ember Valley
Decay Time: 24 Hours
Growable: Yes.

Pomegranites grow from dark-coloured trees in cave areas. The Pomegranite is as mysterious as it is ancient. A fruit that grows only in the dark caves beneath the earth, it grows without sunlight, without warmth. It should not be, and yet, it is.

 

Nectar

Moondew Nectar

Favourite Food: Flutter Slime
Location: Starlight Strand – Pink Side (Evening/Night, From 5 PM)
Growable: No. x1 Harvest

Moondew Nectar is a food type which can be found exclusively in Starlight Strand. It is significantly hard to farm with you only being able to harvest 1-2 per spot. It cannot be grown in The Conservatory.

Find the Moondew Nectar on the top of trees and on the sides of cliffs. Lots of it can be located around the Flutter Gordo on the pink side of the Starlight Strand.

Nectar spoils fairly quickly, so plan your farming runs accordingly!
