Spore plant pods are a consumable item added in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts.


The spore plant pod is a very useful item to have in Zion as it not only gives you a small boost in health, but it will also give you a large resistance to poison for two minutes. It is exceedingly useful against foes wielding dark datura-infused weapons.


You can find spore plant pods on the corpses of giant spore plants, common enemies in Zion Canyon. Giant spore plants can also be found in and around the X-22 botanical garden at Big MT.


  • The pods are affected by Survival and thus gain increased resistance and health effects with higher skill levels.
  • They can be used to craft blood shield and datura antivenom.
  • The pip-boy icon is a brahmin meat icon.
