Cross Pollination
<a href=""><img class="size-full wp-image-5581 alignleft" src="" alt="menu_reproduction" width="201" height="150" /></a> When a plant first reaches its full-grown state, it will sprout its full foliage, no longer contained within the plant bowl. At this stage of the plant's growth, it will begin to produce pollen. You can view your plant's current Pollination State in the Plant Resources Menu. The plant will eventually self-pollinate if left unattended, and then begin to produce seeds. Seeds produced by a self-pollinated plant will grow up into an exact duplicate of the "parent" plant. Once a plant reaches the pollen-producing stage at days 7 - 9 of the cycle, its pollen may be gathered by the owner by using the Cross-Pollination button. Gathered pollen may be used on another full-grown plant. When you pollinate one plant with pollen from another plant, the targeted plant will produce seeds that will grow into a hybrid of the two plants. Plants were initially added to the game in four generations. A bug introduced in 2009 accidentally replaced one of the first generation plants, tribarrel cactus, with a random seed. The consequences of this are explored in the page <a href="">Colored Peculiar Plants</a>. For historical reference the original four generations were as follows: <h4>First Generation</h4> <ul> <li>Tribarrel Cactus</li> <li>Fern</li> <li>Campion Flowers</li> </ul> <h4>Second Generation</h4> <ul> <li>Water Plant (tribarrel x fern)</li> <li>Lillies (campion x fern)</li> </ul> <h4>Third Generation</h4> <ul> <li>Snowdrops (lillies x campion)</li> <li>Rushes (lillies x fern)</li> <li>Small Palm (water plant x fern)</li> <li>Prickly Pear Cactus (tribarrel x water plant)</li> </ul> <h4>Fourth Generation</h4> <ul> <li>Barrel Cactus (tribarrel x prickly pear)</li> <li>Snake Plant (water plant x prickly pear)</li> <li>Century Plant (water plant x small palm)</li> <li>Ponytail Palm (small palm x fern)</li> <li>Elephant Ears (fern x rushes)</li> <li>Pampas Grass (rushex x lillies)</li> <li>Bulrushes (lillies x snowdrops)</li> <li>Poppies (snowdrops x campion)</li> </ul> <h3>Calculating Pollination Results</h3> <table> <tbody> <tr> <td width="40"> <table border="1"> <tbody> <tr> <td>Plant</td> <td>Value</td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5582" src="" alt="tribarrelcactus_plain" width="33" height="37" /> </a>tri-barrel Cactus</td> <td>1</td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5583" src="" alt="barrelcactus_plain" width="18" height="33" /> </a>Barrel Cactus</td> <td>2</td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5584" src="" alt="pricklypearcactus_plain" width="28" height="31" /> </a>Prickly Pear Cactus</td> <td>3</td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5585" src="" alt="snakeplant_plain" width="29" height="60" /> </a>Snakeplant</td> <td>4</td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5586" src="" alt="waterplants_plain" width="43" height="38" /></a>Water Plant</td> <td>5</td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5587" src="" alt="centuryplant_plain" width="31" height="112" /></a>Century Plant</td> <td>6</td> </tr> <tr> <td><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5588" src="" alt="smallpalm_plain" width="48" height="66" /> Small Palm Tree</td> <td>7</td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5589" src="" alt="ponytailpalm_plain" width="47" height="64" /></a>Ponytail Palm</td> <td>8</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> <td>The color and type of each "parent" plant are combined to produce a new type of seed that will grow from the targeted plant. While you may continue to gather pollen from a plant throughout its entire life cycle, a plant may only be pollinated once (either by itself, through natural pollination, or through manual cross-pollination from another plant). There are 17 plant types obtained through the initial plant system and able to be cross bred. To establish your breeding program simply take the numbers of your two parent plants, as displayed in the tables left and right, add them together and then divide by two. If the result of your addition is an odd number and cannot be divided by 2, the new plant has a 50/50 chance of being either of those closest. Example: 3 (prickly pear cactus) + 8 (Ponytail Palm) = 11. Plant would either be 5 (Waterplant) or 6 (Century Plant)</td> <td width="40"> <table border="1"> <tbody> <tr> <td>Plant</td> <td>Value</td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5590" src="" alt="fern_plain" width="62" height="53" /></a> Fern</td> <td>9</td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5591" src="" alt="elephantear_plain" width="38" height="47" /></a>Elephant Ear Plant</td> <td>10</td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5592" src="" alt="rushes_plain" width="51" height="50" /></a>Rushes</td> <td>11</td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5593" src="" alt="pampasgrass_plain" width="47" height="58" /></a>Pampas Grass</td> <td>12</td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5594" src="" alt="lilies_plain" width="42" height="50" /></a> Lillys</td> <td>13</td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5595" src="" alt="bulrushes_plain" width="47" height="51" /></a>Bulrushes</td> <td>14</td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5596" src="" alt="snowdrops_plain" width="42" height="38" /></a>Snowdrops</td> <td>15</td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5597" src="" alt="poppies_plain" width="42" height="47" /></a> Poppies</td> <td>16</td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5598" src="" alt="campion" width="44" height="57" /></a> Campion</td> <td>17</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <h3>Pollination State</h3> The Pollination State indicator <a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5599" src="" alt="icon_pollen" width="19" height="20" /></a>displays the current pollination state of a plant.<a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5600" src="" alt="icon_pollen_yellow" width="41" height="24" /></a> indicates that the plant has not yet produced any pollen, as it has not reached full-grown level.<a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5601" src="" alt="icon_pollen_red" width="37" height="24" /></a> indicates that the plant has entered its pollen producing state, and can have pollen gathered from it, or be cross-pollinated to.<a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5602" src="" alt="icon_pollen_green" width="42" height="24" /></a> indicates that the plant has been pollinated (either by itself, through natural self-pollination, or by the pollen of another plant).

Plants of this color give no seeds. <h4>Special Colors and Bonsai Trees:</h4> - Four rare colors have been introduced with the "Naturalist Quest". - The rare colors are pink, magenta, aqua and fire red. <a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5606" src="" alt="seeds-four" width="54" height="8" /></a> - Five different <a title="plant-colors.html#bonsai&quot;">Bonsai</a> Seeds have been introduced with the Samurai Empire Expansion. - Both the rare colors and the Bonsai Seeds are considered mutants and give no seeds.
