Did you hear about the Animal Crossing Pocket Camp gardening update, but you do not realize how to plant flowers? See our complete flower guide, which includes how to irrigate and cross-pollinate, here.
On Monday, Nintendo launched a new gardening update for Animal Crossing Pocket Camp players that allows them not only to plant flowers in their small camp, but also to take care of friends' gardens through watering, cross pollination and more. While most of us received the update notification of gardening in our mailbox, not many details were given on where to plant your new flowers and what there is to have a garden. In this guide, we've compiled everything you need to know about the new garden update, which includes how to obtain and plant flowers, water, cross-pollination and more.
Animal Crossing Pocket Camp Flower guide: How to plant, Water, Cross pollination and more
# 1 Where to find your garden plot
Planting a flower garden is quite simple and the game helps guide you, that is, once you find a damn thing you are not paying attention, you may not have noticed, but to the left of your camp, a new space has been cleared where you can plant new flowers. To start the garden, simply go to the garden entrance and chat a little with Isabelle, who is standing at the entrance. She will give you a small propaganda about gardening and then she will send you to chat with Lloid, a happy little garden cactus that will show you the ropes.
# 2: How to plant your first flowers
Planting flowers in your garden is quite simple. Just touch an empty plot of land and a menu above your head that says "Plant Seeds" will appear. Tap on it and you will be directed to all the seeds in your inventory. Simply tap on the one you want to plant and your character will get it.
# 3 How to accelerate plant growth
Growing flowers takes a long time, but if you want to speed it up you can use a special fertilizer. Each drop you use accelerates the process in 30 minutes. While Lliod will give you some fertilizer to start with, you can buy more in a special gardening package for $ .99.
# 4 How to harvest flowers
Once you have grown completely, touch it and you will have the option to harvest or cross-pollinate. To harvest your flowers, simply touch the option and your avatar will go to work to do it.
# 5 How to cross pollination flowers and why you will want
As mentioned above, when a flower is fully grown, you have the option to harvest or cross-pollinate. If you choose to cross-pollinate, this gives you the potential to get new or rare seeds in return. To cross-pollinate, you must have at least one flower harvested in your articles. Once you touch the cross pollination button, you will select the flower you want to use for cross pollination. When the task is complete, you will reap a new set of seeds, often rare that you would not otherwise find. What is used in the cross-warning is that the set of flowers harvested in cross-pollination is lost. With time, you will have so many flowers in your arsenal, that it will hardly seem like a great sacrifice.
6 # Why plant / harvest flowers?
According to Lloid, the flowers that you harvest can be used to obtain items in your "Flower Exchange". These are mainly decorative items such as potted plants or stuffed animals to show around your camp. However, they are a fun addition.
# 7 How to water the plants
You may have noticed a watering bucket in the corner of your garden and possibly even a notice to water your flowers when the soil dries. But how can you tell when the flowers need watering? This is really quite simple. If you enter your garden and see that some of the plots have a lighter colored soil than others, these are the dry plots. When you touch them, you will see the option to water those plots. I'm not sure what would happen if you ignore watering your plots, but I guess it slows down growth or makes them not bloom. Either way, it is probably smart to visit your garden every time you make your visits to the game.
# 8 How to help friends in their gardens
In addition to planting and caring for your own garden, you can also help people on your friends list with their gardens. Simply touch a friend's name on your list and tape the "Visit friend" button and, if you have a garden set up, you will see the option to visit the camp or the garden. Touch the "Garden" option to take it to your garden. Once there, you can water the parcels dry or pollinate some of the flowers of your friends to get new seeds. The ability to help friends in their gardens is somewhat more interactive than simply visiting to offer congratulations, as it provides legitimate benefits for both.
