Cotton slimes are one five new slimes found in the long-awaited Slime Rancher 2 game. Slimes are balls of gelatinous alien creatures that live on a planet called Far, Far Range. They produce plorts, which can be used to make money, craft items, and unlock areas within the game. Each Slime is unique and has its favorite food and best methods to care for them. Let’s take a look at everything you need to know about Cotton Slimes!

Where to Find Cotton Slimes?

It is one of the three “starter slimes” in Slime Rancher 2, which means it is an easy one to find just by leaving The Conservatory and starting to explore Rainbow Island. You will find them throughout Rainbow Fields.

How to care for Cotton Slimes?

Cotton Slimes are a docile type of slime. Their diet consists of veggies, but you’ll want to feed them their favorite vegetable to get more plorts out of the ones you keep in your corral. You will need to ensure you have High Walls in order to keep your Cotton Slimes from escaping.

Cotton Slimes Favorite Food

You want to feed your Cotton Slimes their favorite food, which is Water Lettuce, because this doubles the number of plorts they produce, which means your production yield is higher and you can convert to more money or craft more items more quickly.

You can find Water Lettuce throughout the Rainbow Plains, making it easy to feed your Cotton Slimes their favorite food and get the most plorts out of them!

We hope this helps you find, feed, and take care of your Cotton Slimes as you make your way through Slime Rancher 2. We have more how-to guides for Slime Rancher 2 if you need more assistance!
