Strangler bloom is a consumable item in Fallout 76.


A blossoming strangler pod supporting a white five-petaled flower. The base of each the petals are dark purple with a green vein-like pattern. Each flower has three prominent speckled stamens and emit a distinct bright green glow, even after picking.

Having blossomed from a strangler pod, the flowers can be found in many of the same swampy areas, growing on trees, rocks, and old stumps.

Strangler blooms are used in the recipe for RadShield and the disease cure Mire variant.


Strangler blooms are found in the Mire, primarily in the river behind Dyer Chemical.[verification overdue] They can be found attached to tree roots and tree stumps in place of strangler pods. They also appear after flushing the river with fertilizer during the quest An Organic Solution.

Strangler blooms may also be obtained as a rare reward for completing the Project Paradise event quest.


The mechanics of strangler bloom spawn are unconfirmed. The community has mentioned (without evidence):

  • They are confined to the Dyer Chemical river area.
  • Heart of the Swamp making them appear.
  • Spawn at night. (although this makes them easier to see)

The best safe bet method to acquire strangler blooms is to server jump (exit to menu and play) on Dyer Chemical. Strangler blooms will appear after rejoining without triggering any sequence or action. Please note that the game recognizes that the resource has been gathered once you pick them up so it will take some time to pick them up again, even if they appear on the game.
