The first step to figuring out how to water the plant in Vampyr is locating the plant. The plant you’re able to water in Vampyr is located in Dr. Reid’s office at the Pembroke Hospital. If you walk to the back of the room, you’ll find a crafting workbench. Beside the workbench is a small potted plant. Interact with the plant to inspect it, causing Reid to remark that the plant is dying.

To save the plant, you’ll need to water it, but finding water for the plant in Vampyr isn’t that simple. To obtain water, you’ll need to head over to the West End district on the border between Whitechapel. This is an area you can’t wander into immediately as it’s filled with higher level enemies. It’s recommended that you wait until level 10 or higher before exploring this area.

Once you’ve leveled up, head to the West End and and obtain water. Next, return to the Pembroke Hospital and interact with the plant again. This will prompt Dr. Reid to water the plant. In three days, the plant will recover and you’ll officially unlock the Unlife is Strange achievement.

That’s all there is to it, simply locate the plant in Dr. Reid’s office, obtain water from the West End, then return to Dr. Reid’s office and use the water on the plant!
