How to reach the locked protoplasm in the factory between the first and second broken machine?
I'm not looking for the answer to this puzzle.
I just want to know whether or not it is possible to reach the protoplasm in this puzzle in the factory with just the two first nozzles you get, or whether I have to come back here at a later moment in the game.
I've attempted placing several seeds on the floor already, but my impression is that isn't really the way to go. Even when I almost neared the end the water still wouldn't go up to the container at the end.
I just tried again, and was able to solve it myself! The answer is yes, it is possible! You don't need any items from later in the game.
I'll provide a hint underneath here:
You need to find a way to attract the water and guide it along its path to the container.
And the answer underneath here:
First fill the basin with water, then use the suction of your nozzle, aiming it at the floor to drag the water to the left side and up.
