Xander root is commonly found growing around trails, rocks, and around the mouths of caves as well as in the open desert. It is visible via a tall green stalk, the root partially protruding out of the ground. Once collected, xander root can be used in the crafting of both healing powder and stimpaks. The roots will regrow after being harvested.
