When a black rose with the gold flag reproduces, it will have 50% chance of consuming its gold flag to produce a gold rose instead of regular offspring. You can exploit this behavior by pre-watering all needed tiles with a regular can first, and then water your desired black roses with the golden watering can for no durability loss. Good guides only focus on simple combinations, effective combinations, or a balance of both. Take a look at this infamous breeding combination found in a lot of bad guides. The golden watering can waters a three-by-three area, and if a black rose is on the center tile of that area, it will receive a hidden attribute called the gold flag. There are 270 different flower genotypes in total. If you want them to reproduce and they are not sparkling, yes. Is the Official Companion Guide’s breeding guide good ? The Lily of the Valley has only one color variant If it does, it’s likely good. When cloning, the parent flower will replicate its genes and give birth to a new child flower, which will have the same genes and color as its parent. If you want to see the results of a particular combination, use the Breeding Simulator. The simplest way to clone a flower is to put it on its own, not touching any other flower of its species. You can add another species in between pairs to make efficient use of the available space. Because they are based on color, which makes them inaccurate and unreliable. You have to start with flowers coming from seeds or mystery islands to ensure they have the right genes. You unknowingly used flowers which had the right genes, and it worked for you. The gold flag will stay on the black rose until it produces a gold rose. Visitors are people from other islands who visit your island. Even a broken clock is right twice a day. It cannot reproduce, plucked or trampled, and has no known effect. Learn the basics of flower mechanics and obtain all the flowers you want easily. Flowers will grow, and grown flowers which have been hydrated during the day will have a chance to reproduce. The normal sparkle animation from watering flowers will change to a "super sparkle" animation when that flower has been watered by 5 unique visitors, indicating the flower has the max +75% bonus. Does moving a flower affects reproduction rates ? If you have a doubt, check the Breeding Simulator. PSA: Having your flowers watered by visitors will increase rare flower production (infographic inside) SWITCH Hey all! You can add more species to make efficient use of the available space. In short, sharing is caring. to water your flowers. If you get a gold rose from a black rose watered by a regular can or by rain, it’s because that black rose already had the gold flag in the first place, which means it had been watered by a golden watering can previously, either by you or by another player.

There are 53 different flower phenotypes in total, not including Lily of the Valley. Visitors: Having visitors from other islands water your flowers significantly increase your base production rate (from 5% up to 80%! You can use the Watering Can to water your flowers. Watering cans of any type will not lose their durability when watering only tiles which have already been watered that day.
