Slime Rancher 2 is a wonderfully relaxing, highly-addictive farming game where you collect and raise different species of slimes. One of the first challenges you’ll face at the starting point of Rainbow Island is the Phosphor Gordo Slime. This giant slime blocks your way to a cave with a secret. If you’re unsure, you’ve probably asked yourself, “how do I get past the Phosphor Gordo Slime in Slime Rancher 2?”

Even though the text below the Phosphor Gordo says its diet is fruit, it’s a little misleading because Carrots and Water Lettuce are actually vegetables, so the only early-game item that qualifies as fruit is your Pogofruit. 

Once you feed the Phosphor Gordo enough food, he will start to shake until he explodes. This will unlock a secret cavern that you can use to gain access to additional early-game resources.
