For the garden from a lore perspective, see Ndipaya Kingdom.

The Underground Garden is an area in Resident Evil 5, featured in Chapter 5-1.


The Underground Garden is the place where the Progenitor virus was extracted from the Stairway of the Sun flower. The garden links the Ndipaya ruins to Tricell's lab.


There is a BSAA Emblem hidden under the walkway leading to the lab door. Player can also find hidden treasures:

  • Ruby (Square) - Turn around at the start of the chapter and look up. The Ruby is located on the rock.
  • Emerald (Pear) - It is located high up on the rock face at the north of the garden chamber.
  • Jewel Beetle - Go down the steps at the west side of the mysterious plants to find it next to the water purification tanks.[1]

By crossing the small bridge toward the lab, player can read the "From Chief Researcher Brandon's Journal - No. 1" file.

The next area is the Progenitor Virus House.
