The gas plant is a species of hostile flora on LV-1201.
Gas plants are man-sized monstrosities looking strongly animalistic in appearance. Their body-like stalk, sprouting from a broad base, ends in a mouth-like flower with four pointed petals. The plant reacts when approached, possibly detecting threats through vibrations or pheromone scenting. It responds by squeaking, closing its opened petals and emitting a large cloud of green gas or spores. This defense mechanism can affect organisms within a 50 feet radius, even harming Yautjas and Xenomorphs.
Gas plants are rare, only encountered in remote inlets and marshes, and occasionally near Alien Hives.

- The gas plant bears a strong resemblance to the Graboid creature from the Tremors films.
