The psychoid plant is a leafy plant whose leaves can be brewed into psychite tea and refined into flake and yayo. Sowing psychoid plants requires a minimum growing skill of 6, but any colonist capable of plant cutting can harvest them. Psychoid plants are one of the few plants that can be planted and grown on polluted tiles.

Contrary to its description, it seems to have no particular ability to repel herbivores, who will continue to eat it if available.

  • Trivia

    Psychoid is likely based off of the real-world coca plant. Their appearances are very similar, both have been refined into a tea by ancient cultures, and both have a "cheap" and "refined" drug form.
