Death Flowers are unique. They have no monetary value, I guess no one wants them. This is crazy given how powerful they are. When the grim reaper approaches and a death flower is in your Sim's inventory, the Sim will exchange it for their life! Holding a few death flowers and using life-extending tricks like Ambrosia, Life Fruit, Young Again LTR and Alchemy potions can effectively make a Sim immortal.

As you can see, Death Flowers are only harvested once before the plant dies.

Finding Death Flowers
Death Flowers can be found in two easy ways:

  • Search our site for special seed locations in each town. Many forum members have provided these spawn points on the various Expansion Pack boards.
  • Many graveyards have death flowers ready for harvest. If they aren't quite harvestable, wait until 5am the next day and check back!

Share locations of special seeds and harvestable death flower.

I found the way to keep the original deathflower bush alive while havivng more than one in my private garden

without any cheats.....

'analize the harvestable'on the plant with the science analize beam this does not do any harm to it , clone from sample and plant the flower, result is your very own deathflower bush.

I found three death seeds by fishing with the karma power "get lucky" in the cemetary pond. my sim is also a level 10 fisherman...i dont know if that makes a difference. I also fished with produce i grew in my garden as bait

say you die as an adult and use the death flower to be brought back, does it bring you back to the beginning of adult status?

If your Sim is very good at gardening, ie has the green thumb trait, you have a chance to be able and revive the death flower once at skill level 7. Your odds are increased with a higher skill and I'm sure the Lifetime award, Super Green Thumb helps as well.
If your Sim doesn't have the green thumb trait, you can search for more seeds to plant. Graveyard area seems to be the best place to find them.
Good luck, and happy Simming!

There is also the buydebug cheat, which allows you to place multiple mature plants for free. I have 14 death flowers for one family right now, I'm passing them down each generation until I find a sim I really like!

do you know if the fairy hidden train green thumb and super green thumb stack or is getting them for a fairy a waste of a slot ?

Where do you look in the catacombs? I can't find it and I really want to be seen again so I can get a boyfriend. I hear the Grim Reeper in my house, but I cannot see him, or find him. Please help ASAP! Thank you.(:

If you are immortal by having a death flower in your inventory, how do you become normal again?

In sims 3 Ambitions you can make your sim master the inventing skill and make a time machine and if you travel in the future you can get a death flower seed

I do not understand how to get multipel of the death flowers, i have one but if i plant it and wait till its fully grown and harvestable. I only have one, so is it inposseble to grow them (as in have a garden full of them) and have multiple of them.

I was able to get more death flowers by feeding to the Omni plant. So my witches have 3 each.

How did you feed the death flower to the omni plant? I have tried, and cannot, and other forums say it's not possible.

If you go to the cheat box and type in buyDeBug and then go to furniture and then organize by function, there is a question mark, click on it and then I believe it's like the 4th tab over and it says "gardening plants and seed spawners. You just go through there and read and find where it says death plant. then click on it and place a few and there you have it!

My sims had 2 death flowers in her inventory but when the grim reaper came, I had no way of getting into her inventory to give it to the grim reaper. Is there a specific way to do this.

Anyone know this answer

I'm having this same issue. all my Sims die of old age regardless of whether or not they hold the death flower. I don't see any way to interact with the death character either with the dying SIM or another SIM nearby who also holds a death flower. it's frustrating as I have read that you can save old age Sims this way.

BiteMe says...
You don't do anything, and in my experience it's only for sims who die young. Before you shake his hand, a message will come up saying 'For me? It's so pretty! I'll go put it in a vase right away' of something like that. Chasing Grim around your house won't do anything because you're already a ghost.

Mine died of old age, but then gave her death flower to Grim and he let her live. Now I have no idea if she can still die of old age or if she's immortal now or what!
