When the t-Virus outbreak contaminated the [[Arklay Laboratory|Umbrella facility]] in the [[Arklay Mountains]], a specific plant growing at "Point 42" of the facility was exposed to the virus, thus undergoing massive metamorphosis.

Because of the drastic changes, which also included its dramatic increase in size, it is unknown even by researchers and observers what kind of plant it originally was. With a massive flower-like nucleus protected by distorted petals and extremely powerful vines, Plant 42 immensely grew to invade the [[Dormitory]], using its securely protected vines to feed on the t-Virus altered water of the [[Aqua Ring]] beneath it. It had also acquired further nutrients by using its vines to capture its prey, when given the opportunity, and drain them of their blood. It was confirmed by Henry Sarton's report that there were several researchers who were killed by Plant 42. When Plant 42 exposes its nucleus or internal organs by opening its petals, it becomes much more aggressive towards trespassers.<ref>''Resident Evil'', [[Plant 42 Report]]</ref>

As noted in a chemistry report lying around in the Dormitory, the Plant's mutations also made it singularly weak to a particular chemical codenamed [[V-Jolt]] or [[UMB № 20]]. Exposing the roots of the plant to the toxin dries them up and weakens it considerably.

Plant 42 was a large plant infused with the t-Virus, and was originally part of an experiment on botanic subjects by Umbrella researcher Dr. Henry Sarton. The name location that the plant was growing on was "Point 42" of the dormitory (Plant 42 would literally mean "Plant at Point 42").

History

Plant 42 was created in May, 1998 at some point after the t-Virus was released. It may have been infected by contaminated water, directly infected by Dr. Henry Sarton during the accident, or both.[1] Plant 42 proved to be completely unique, incomparable to any other plant-based test subjects. Its roots buried deep through the wood and concrete in the residence and began feeding on the chemical-rich water of the Aqua Ring, likely promoting further growth.[2] Expanding its vines across the building, it used cracks in the flooring to attack passing staff members, feeding on their blood.[1][excerpt 1]

By May 21, Plant 42 had completely taken over a room of the dormitory. Able to manipulate doorknobs and move its vines, Plant 42 captured and drained several researchers of their blood when they tried to destroy it.[2] It was discovered by Sarton's team that Plant 42 was sensitive to a chemical known as UMB № 20, otherwise known as V-JOLT. A plan was devised to destroy it, involving feeding it directly to the roots.[2] However, this plan could not be accomplished, either due to the continued deterioration of the researchers' health from t-Virus infection or because of the escaped Neptunes in the flooded Aqua Tank chamber. Plant 42 was finally destroyed on the night of July 24 when S.T.A.R.S. searched the dormitory building.[3]

Legacy

As a result of the research staff's continued work during the outbreak, Umbrella was able to receive research data on the Plant, based on the 'Plant 42 Report'. The company soon after developed the smaller, more mobile "Plant 43", which was in development in Raccoon City prior to its own viral outbreak.
