Plant Food is a "climb up the river" style level with plants everywhere surrounding Crash. The level is filled with water; fall in it and the player will lose health. Plant Food is the third and final level that allows the player to hop onto a Jet Ski. Crash can control the Jet Ski, and must avoid obstacles. This level is considered more challenging than the other river levels (Hang Eight, Air Crash), possibly due to the increased amount of Venus Flytraps. There is a Bonus Round in the level. Plant Food contains the following enemies that a player will face:
Like in every level, the regular Clear Gem is present. To obtain this gem, a player must collect every box in the level. Furthermore, Plant Food contains the Yellow Gem. The Yellow Gem can be obtained by reaching the end of the level before the timer at the bottom right reaches 0.
