- Six grow in planters inside the Vault-Tec Agricultural Research Center - One on the main floor, and five downstairs. Unlike other firecaps, these are not affected by Green Thumb.

- Three can be found in a farm field near the I-59 and I-61 intersection. The farm location is on the image of a house on the main map
- Four can be found outside of the overseer's camp next to I-59 around Slocum's Joe, up to three next to the bus, one to the right of the building and one or two west across the river from the Nuka Cola billboard. Up to four more may be found around the pink house with yellow garage just south-southeast of Slocum's Joe, and more can be found along the railroad tracks east of I-59. From the pink house, head north along the tracks and keep looking left and right of the tracks. They spawn sporadically until you get to the second bridge. Under the second rail bridge is the last spawn.
