Strange Horticulture – All Endings Guide

All endings available in Strange Horticulture and the conditions to get to them. Of course, it contains spoilers.

Guide to All Endings

General Remarks

There are four ending paths, each with two variants, for a total of eight endings.

The conditions to unlock each path and the actions to complete that path are described below.

At the end of day 15, the Woman in the Jade Mask will come to the shop. Further on in this guide, she will be referred to as ‘Thea’. Which plant is given to her at this point determines which ending variant of the path you will obtain. Widow’s Woe weakens Thea’s resolve, while Dead Man’s Fingers strengthens it. The endings below are marked accordingly.

Strange Horticulture saves automatically at the end of each day. It is therefore easy to go back and choose a different outcome.

There probably isn’t much of a deeper meaning to the plants that decorate each ending.
