Where to find Strangler Bloom in Fallout 76
Strangler Bloom isn’t the easiest plant to locate in Appalachia. You will have a much easier time locating plants like Bloodleaf or Tarberries. This is because Strangler Bloom is only found in one area of the game; The Mire. The Mire is the dark area on the eastern side of the map that is filled with dense forests and dangerous enemies like giant crabs.
Strangler Bloom can only be found in an area around Dyer Chemical. Specifically, you can find this plant to the west and northwest of the chemical plant. Unfortunately, if you haven’t completed the necessary steps, you won’t be able to get your hands on any of it. Before you can get Strangler Bloom, you will need to complete a quest called An Organic Solution. You can start this quest by finding Ella Ames’ research in the Southhampton Estates.
