Feed the Cowplant or Eat the Cake
Regular Sims can interact with the Cowplant in two different manners: they can Feed the Cowplant, or Eat the Cake. If they chose to eat the cake, the plant will most likely devour them and your Sim will get the visit of the Grim Reaper.
Sims killed by Cowplants will also leave the Essence of Life behind which other sims can milk it and add a few days to their lifespan.
If the plant spits your Sim out, they won’t die but will leave behind an essence of the mood they were in when the plant tried to eat them. Other Sims can then milk the Cowplant to get the respective mood.
In most of the cases, your Sim won’t die if they eat the cake of the Cowplant the first time. Usually, it takes two attempts to kills your Sims with the Cowplant’s cake.
As you can see, Cowplants are a great and quick way to kill the Sims you don’t really like.
