Slime Rancher 2 will have you wrangling slimes, feeding them, and selling what comes out of them for big profits. As you embark on your adventure, you will no doubt want to unlock and discover everything the game has to offer. If you’re looking to find some Ash to feed your Fire Slimes, we’ll tell you what you need to do in this guide.

Where-to Get Ash in Slime Rancher 2

To get ash in Slime Rancher 2, you need to create an Incinerator at an empty Ranch Plot at The Conservatory. Once you have one placed, you will need to upgrade it with an Ash Trough. Now, just fire extra items or food into the incinerator which will produce ash in the trough to feed your Fire Slimes.

An Incinerator at first glance just seems like a way to trash extra items you have lying around. While it does serve this purpose, its main function is to act as a home for Fire Slime. These are special Slime that can only live in lava or smoldering environments. They also can only produce Fire plorts when they consume ash.

Once you have your Incinerator and have upgraded it with the Ash Trough you can place your Fire Slime in the trough area. They will survive without ash, but to keep them producing plorts you need to burn things. Shoot extra fruit, chickens, or vegetables into the top part of the Incinerator to produce the ash. You will visually see it piling up in the trough as you burn things. The Fire Slimes will consume the ash and it will eventually run out.

Ash cannot be collected with your vacuum and currently only exists in the trough. Your Fire Slimes will eat it automatically when they’re hungry, so just wait for them to consume and create plorts. Fire Slime can also live in the decorative Magma Pool, however, they won’t produce plorts because there will be no ash to eat.

We hope this helped you get ash so that you can keep producing Fire plorts in the game. We have more how-to guides for Slime Rancher 2 if you need more assistance!
