Want to make your town pretty with flowers, or simply want to show off that cool
new hybrid to your friends? Then you've come to the right place!
Regular Flowers: Just like in real life, flowers must be watered at least
once a day. Flowers not watered will wilt the next day, and die if not watered soon.
As for weather, rain and snow will automatically water all flowers in town. Note:
If you attempt to pick up a wilted flower, it will be destroyed. As well, flowers
can also be placed inside your house. Unlike real life, however, they will never
wilt or require watering. But be careful! Flowers can be killed if you run over
them. Happily, flowers can be also be worn; tulips, Cosmos, Pansies, Jacob's Ladders
and Carnations can be worn in your hair, while roses are carried in your mouth.
Hybrids: Hybrids are cross-breeds of two flowers that are of the same type
(ex. Tulips, Roses, etc), and follow all the rules of regular flowers. Hybrids aren't
that important, unless you like discovering a new type of flower. But some people
may be willing to give you quite a lot of bells for one of these rare flowers. Even
some bugs are attracted to a certain type of hybrid, so bug collectors might want
to put some time into this. As well, they play a big part in creating a
Rafflesia, as shown above, appear when the town started getting weeds, trees in
"bad" places, and flowers wilting or completely gone (all which occurs during time
traveling as well). You can't dig it up, so the only way to get rid of this annoying
plant is to deweed your town. Note: It will only disappear when ALL weeds
are gone. Miss one and it won't disappear. Flies can be caught by this too(right
over the plant).
To Grow a Hybrid:
First, buy two similar types of flowers (Cosmos, Roses, Tulips, Pansies) from Nook's
or a friend. Then, plant them next to each other or diagonally, no spaces separating
them. The hybrid will pop up somewhere in the space surrounding the two flowers.
A better chance of attaining a hybrid would be to plant a garden of the flowers,
since there is a small chance of getting a hybrid in the first place. Next, wait.
It may be frustratingly long when it comes to waiting for hybrids, but they're worth
the wait. Feel free watering the flowers if you suspect this will create a hybrid
faster, although you may want to keep your primary flowers alive in the first place.
When looking for a place to plant flowers, try big open spaces, not covered by trees,
houses or signposts (these signposts are where villagers might move in, destroying
the flower). Note: This includes the space directly in front of the door.
Different kinds of Hybrids
Hybriding in AC:CF is EXACTLY like hybriding in AC:WW. The
AC:WW Hybrid guide is located here. There are only two differences: Gold
Roses and Carnations.
Carnations are received on two different holidays throughout the year, not by Nook's,
which means you can only get one of each kind once a year (without time traveling
for them). They come in red, white,
On Mother's Day, your mother will send you a bag of pink carnations
(sells for 500 Bells at Nooks).
On Father's Day, your dad will send you a bag of red carnations
(sells for 500 Bells at Nooks).
White carnations (sells for 2000 Bells at Nooks) are
only obtained by cross-breeding pink and red carnations.
Gold roses are made from watering wilted black roses with golden watering can. In
AC:WW, gold roses did not breed. However, in this game, they do breed.
gold + gold = yellow roses
gold + yellow roses = pink roses and red roses
gold + pink roses = orange roses
gold + purple roses = white roses and red roses
gold + blue roses = red roses
gold + red roses = pink roses
Helpful Hint: If you plant a Jacob's Ladder next to any two flowers that you try
to hybrid, you will have a greater chance of getting a hybrid than if the Jacob's
Ladder wasn't there.
