When you play Animal Crossing: New Leaf village, you will find out that there are flowers in your town automatically. Moreover, new flowers will randomly appear, your villagers might plant new flowers, and you can also get flower seeds in the lost and found if you build a police station. But do you know that you can also grow hybrid flowers on your own?
By placing particular types of flowers as well as particular colors next to each other, there is a possibility for you to grow a hybrid color, which is a flower with a rare color. Find out how to do so by following this animal crossing new leaf flower guide.
Steps to Grow Hybrid Flowers
In order to grow a hybrid flower, you need to place 2 flowers within the same variety next to each other. For instance, 2 cosmos, 2 roses, and so on. Then, water both of them. In order to grow a new flower from the pair, bury a bag of fertilizer next to only one of the flower pairs.
A new flower is able to grow only if there is an empty space next to the flowers. The new flower perhaps has a unique and rare color that cannot be bought in the garden shop or cannot randomly grow by itself in your city.
There are probably 5 new flowers growing in your city every day. New flowers will only grow next to the flowers you have watered the previous day. But if you place incompatible flowers next to each other and water only one of them, or water a flower that is not placed next to any other flowers, it will reduce the number of new flowers that will grow in the next day.
So, if you want to get the best chance to grow a hybrid flower, you are suggested to use the Beautiful Town Ordinance. Water only the flowers that you want to breed together in order to grow a new hybrid flower. Do not water other flowers.
During the rainy days and snowy days in your city, all of the flowers are watered. So, the new flowers that will grow in the next day will be random. Plant only 2 flowers next to each other in order to have better control over which pairs of flowers that create new flowers. Planting 3 flowers or more flowers next to each other is such a bad idea.
Moreover, in order to make sure one additional flower a day, which is 6 new flowers a day in total instead of just the usual 5, you can try to bury a bag of fertilizer next to one of the flower pairs. Only in this way you can have an additional flower per day. You will get no effect if you bury fertilizer next to more than one flower pair.
When a new ‘kid’ flower grows in your city, it brings some of the color information it gets from its parents. The color information brought by the new color can influence the color of its descendants, which can produce undesired colors when you try to grow a certain hybrid flower.
This is why you are suggested to purchase a new bag of flower seeds and use it to grow a hybrid flower as you wish instead of using flowers that have grown in your city after being watered. Know that hitting your flowers with a net or stepping on them can change their color characteristics as well. So, be careful. This is why you are suggested to walk instead of running.
In order to reduce the risk of anyone hitting your flowers or stepping on them, you can try to plant the flowers on the beach. If you wish for creating more hybrid flowers with the same type, you can follow these following instructions:
- 2 purple flowers tend to create more purple flowers.
- 2 black flowers tend to create more black flowers.
- 2 pink flowers are not really reliable to create more pink flowers.
- 2 orange flowers are not really reliable to create more orange flowers.
- 2 blue roses will likely create more blue roses.
- 2 blue violets are not really reliable to create more blue violets.
- 2 blue pansies will likely create more blue pansies.
- Use pink roses that are from 2 red roses planted from new bags of seeds in order to create more pink roses.
- Use pink lilies that are from 2 red lilies planted from new bags of seeds in order to create more pink lilies.
That is the ACNL flower guide in order to grow hybrid flowers. Hybrid flowers are such rare flowers. If you sell them, you will be able to get a huge number of Bells.
