 Introduction                                                       [INTR01]
_______________________________________________________________________________

This guide is meant to help players with the actuarial gardenning part of the
game. I'm going to try to cover all the parts to growing plants, what tools you
need, when things become available, etc. Most people don't realize how
important plants are in this game until they need them, so I decide to make
life a little easier and try to help out the gaming community I love so much by
making a guide all about the plant life in the game.

 Plants                                                             [PLAN02]
_______________________________________________________________________________

There are meny different types of plants in Viva Pinata, seeds, flowers, weeds,
vegetables, bushes, trees and fruits. All the plants except fruit come from
seeds, which you can get from the shop or from seedos. As you go up in level
more seeds will become available to purchase in the shop.


Planting
--------

To plant a seed pick it up and drag it to a surface that it can grow on. If a
seed can grow somewhere then a trowel icon will appear next to your tool icon,
tap the icon to plant the seed. If you can't plant the seed then the trowel
icon will be crossed out. If you don't plant your seeds and leave them on
ground that they can grow on and don't touch it for a long time then the seed
will plant itself. To find out what a seed can grow on select it and look
at the top screen, what the seed can grow on will appear like the requirements
of a pinata.


Watering
--------

Once you plant a seed you will need to water it until it's fully grown. Plants
that need to be watered will have a raindrop icon in front of them when you
select them. The icon will have a arrow on it which tells you if the plant
needs more water, there are several parts to this, if the arrow is all the way
to the left then it needs water soon or it will die, if it's part way to the
left then it would be a good idea to water it, if it's in the middle then it's
just right, if it's part way to the right then it's good you don't need to
water it for awhile and if it's all the way to the right then you didn't listen
to me, I told you not to water it again. If you water it all the way to the
right it will die. From time to time it will rain in your garden, when it does
your plants will get watered a little.


Getting Rid Of
--------------

There are many different ways to get rid of plants. You could not water them or
water them too much, sell them, let pinatas eat the seeds or buds, or beat them
to death with your shovel. If you want to get rid of a tree you will need a
special shovel head to chop it down or you can sell it and if you want to get
rid of seeds you can hit them with your shovel to destroy them or poke them
with it and they will go bad, this can help if you have a lot of weed seeds.
Also whenever you leave a seed on the ground it can't grow on for a long time
it will go bad and disappear.


Fruit & Vegetables
------------------

To get fruit or vegetables you have to fully grow them from seeds. Vegetables
grow like flowers exsept when you fully grow it instead of a flower you get a
vegetable. Frut on the other hand grows from trees and bushes, in order to get
fruit you have to fully grow a tree or bush then either wait for it to fall off
or buy it from the shop. Once you grow fruit or vegetables you will be able to
buy them from the shop, so if you send fruit or vegetable seeds from one
profile to one that doesn't have them yet and grow them then you will be able
to buy that fruit or vegetable on that profile.


Below is a list of all the plant life in the game, enjoy.

+------------------------+===========================+------------------------+

I've set it up in four parts, name, level, cost and sell. Name is the name of
the item, level is what level you get the item at, cost is how much it is to
buy the item and sell it how much it sells for.

+------------------------+===========================+------------------------+
|                        |  Flowers        [FLOW04]  |                        |
+------------------------+===========================+------------------------+

I've broke this list into six parts. Name, sell, F, bud, hour and catalyst. As
you might guess name is the name of the flower and sell is how much you can
sell it for, "F" is short for fertilizer and tells you how much you can sell
the flower for if you use fertilizer on it, bud is how much you can sell the
flower bud for, hour is how long it takes for the flower to grow in game time
and catalyst is what kind of fertilizer you can use on the flower. All flowers
grow on dirt, grass or long grass except three which are, watercress, waterlily
and bullrush. These three flowers grow in water and thus don't need to be
watered.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Daisy             Sell: 10   F: 13   Bud: 5    Hour: 6  Catalyst: Yellow
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Buttercup         Sell: 10   F: 13   Bud: 5    Hour: 6  Catalyst: Yellow
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Bluebell          Sell: 30   F: 39   Bud: 15   Hour: 7  Catalyst: Blue
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Poppy             Sell: 30   F: 39   Bud: 15   Hour: 5  Catalyst: Red
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Tulip             Sell: 150  F: 195  Bud: 75   Hour: 5  Catalyst: Blue
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Sunflower         Sell: 100  F: 130  Bud: 50   Hour: 6  Catalyst: Yellow
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Watercress        Sell: 60   F: 78   Bud: 30   Hour: 4  Catalyst: Green
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Waterlily         Sell: 150  F: 195  Bud: 75   Hour: 4  Catalyst: Blue
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Bird Of Paradise  Sell: 360  F: 468  Bud: 180  Hour: 5  Catalyst: Red
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Bullrush          Sell: 280  F: 364  Bud: 140  Hour: 5  Catalyst: Brown
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Snapdragon        Sell: 210  F: 273  Bud: 105  Hour: 6  Catalyst: Blue
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Orchid            Sell: 450  F: 585  Bud: 225  Hour: 7  Catalyst: Green
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


+------------------------+===========================+------------------------+
|                        |  WEEDS          [WEED05]  |                        |
+------------------------+===========================+------------------------+

There are but four parts to this list. Name, cost, bud and hour. Name is the
name of a name got it? good. Cost is how much it is to get rid of the weed, bud
is how much the weeds bud sells for and hour is how long it take for the weed
to grow. Weeds are bad so what's her face in the shop will not buy them, if you
try to sell them to her you will have to pay her instead. And if a full grown
weed dies it will leave two to three seeds behind.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Thistle                 Cost: -7         Bud: 30         Hour: 6
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Poison Ivy              Cost: -12        Bud: 50         Hour: 6
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Venus Pinata Trap       Cost: -45        Bud: 180        Hour: 7
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Toadstool               Cost: -26        Bud: ---        Hour: 7
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


+------------------------+===========================+------------------------+
|                        |  Vegetables     [VEGE06]  |                        |
+------------------------+===========================+------------------------+

We got five parts this time. Name, Sell, F, hour and catalyst. Name is the name
of the veggie, sell is how much you can sell it for, "F" is short for
fertilizer and tells you how much you can sell the veggie for, hour is how long
it takes to grow by game time and catalyst is what fertilizer the veggie will
want. Something to note is that vegetables can only grow on dirt.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Carrot       Sell: 25      F: 50      Hour: 6     Catalyst: Red
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Turnip       Sell: 25      F: 50      Hour: 6     Catalyst: Brown
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Pumpkin      Sell: 150     F: 300     Hour: 7     Catalyst: Red
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Chilli       Sell: 300     F: 600     Hour: 7     Catalyst: Red
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Corn         Sell: 75      F: 150     Hour: 6     Catalyst: Yellow
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


+------------------------+===========================+------------------------+
|                        |  Bushes         [BUSH07]  |                        |
+------------------------+===========================+------------------------+

It's four parts again, you should know the first three by now but to be
thorough I will say it once more. Name is the name of the bush, sell is how
much you can sell it for, hour is how long it takes to grow in game itme and
grows is what fruit you get from the bush. Bushes are basically short trees,
they work the same way. Grow them and you'll be able to buy their fruit in the
shop.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Blackberry Bush      Sell: 100      Hour: 9     Grows: Blackberry
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Gooseberry Bush      Sell: 150      Hour: 9     Grows: Gooseberry
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Nightshade Bush      Sell: 280      Hour: 9     Grows: N.Shade berry
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


+------------------------+===========================+------------------------+
|                        |  Trees          [TREE08]  |                        |
+------------------------+===========================+------------------------+

This list is broke into four parts. Name, sell, hour and grows. Name is the
name of the tree, sell is what you can get if you sold it, hour is the length
of time it takes for the tree to grow in game time and grows is what you can
get from the tree. Trees take the most time to grow, they can grow on dirt or
grass (Short or long) and once they're fully grown can be worth a lot. After
you grow a tree it will produce frui on a daily basis and live for a long time.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Apple Tree          Sell: 280       Hour: 21     Grows: Apple
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Hazle Tree          Sell: 150       Hour: 21     Grows: Hazlenut
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Produce                                                            [PROD09]
_______________________________________________________________________________

This section is devoted to getting produce, I know what you're thinking (No I
don't mean literally) this is a guide for plants so what's produce doing in
here? well most of the produce comes from fruits and vegetables so it's only
right to include it. There are two ways to get produce, you can harvest it
from pinatas or have Bart transform fruits or vegetables into it. Once you
obtain produce you will be able to buy it from the shop just like fruit and
vegetables, note that you obtain the bone at level five and have to buy it from
the shop to begin with.


Harvesting
----------

There are three pinatas you can harvest produce from, buzzlegum, moozipan and
goobaa. In order to get what you want from them you have to feed them certain
flowers then direct them to their harvesting station, to get a harvesting
station have Willy build them for you. This is a short list of what you need
for each pinata:


         Buzzlegum   >   Buttercup   >   Honey Hive      =   Honey
        -----------------------------------------------------------
         Moozipan    >   Sunflower   >   Milking Shed    =   Milk
        -----------------------------------------------------------
         Goobaa      >   Watercress  >   Shearing Shed   =   Wool



Transforming
------------

In order to transform fruits and vegetables into produce you have to have Bart.
Once you unlock him tap on the basket icon then tap the Bart icon, tap on the
items you want to transform then tap the check box when you're done, note that
it costs 100 coins per item you try to transform so even if you can't transform
an item you still have to pay. You can also transform the produce you get from
pinatas into new produce, which you will have to do to beat the game. Below is
a list of all the items you can transform and what they transform into.


        Apple     >  Toffee Apple     |   Carrot      >   Carrot Cake
      -----------------------------------------------------------------
        Pumpkin   >  Jack O Lantern   |   Blackberry  >   Jam
      -----------------------------------------------------------------
        Corn      >  Bread            |   Bread       >   Sandwich
      -----------------------------------------------------------------
        Honey     >  Medicine         |   Toadstool   >   Mushroom
      -----------------------------------------------------------------
        Banana    >  Banana split     |   Milk        >   Cheese
      -----------------------------------------------------------------
        Monkeynut >  Peanut Butter    |   Gem         >   Rainbow Gem
      -----------------------------------------------------------------
        Gooseberry  > Gooseberry Fool |

 Tools                                                              [TOOL10]
_______________________________________________________________________________

In this section we will talk about tools, when/how you get them and what they
do. There are only five tools in the game which are the shovel, watering can,
fertilizer, grass seed and paving. There are five fertilizers and two types of
grass seed and you start with one of them. There's a lot of watering cans and
don't get me started on shovels, shovels are broken into two parts, heads and
handles and you get them at separate times. There is also paving but you get
only one of those.


Shovel
------

The shovel will be your most used tool as it can be used in a lot of ways such
as, destroying buildings or pinatas, removing grass and rubble, digging for
water and fending off ruffians are a few of the things you can do. As I said
up top the shovel is broken into two parts, heads and handles. The handle part
of the shovel determines the strength of the shovel when you hit something and
the head of the shovel determines what you can do with it.


Fertilizer
----------

fertilizer helps bing out the potential in plants, but you can only use it on
flowers and vegetables. To get fertilizer you have to direct a taffly to a
piece of frut or a vegetable, when he's done doing what he does tap the
fertilizer to place it in your tools icon, when you want to fertilize something
tap the tool icon then tap the fertilize icon, a list of the fertilizers you
have will drop down, then just select the fertilizer you want to use. If you
use fertilizer on a flower it will grow two extra buds and if you use it on a
vegetable it will grow to twice the size. You can hold up to nine bags of each
fertilizer, if you try to take any more it will disappear.


Watering Can
------------

The watering can will be your secend most used tool. You start with the worst
can that holds only a little water and takes a long time to refill, as you go
up in level you will be able to buy different cans from the shop. As the cans
get better they will do different  things such as holding more water, filling
up faster or never running out of water. In order to get a watering can you
have to buy it from ether Lotties or Ivors shop.


Grass Seed
----------

There are only two different types of grass seed, short and long. You start
with the short grass and later you can buy the long grass from the shop. To use
the grass seed tap the tools icon then the grass seed icon, then tap on the
grass seed you want to use, when it's out drag it over the spot you want the
grass at. To remove grass that you don't want anymore just select the shovel
and use the dig ground function to remove it, but if you have long grass and
you use that function it will leave behind short grass insted of dirt. To save
time you can use the function so that you are leaving behind dirt then move the
shovel over the long grass, it should go straight to dirt.


Paving
------

Pavings a weird one, it's not in the encyclopedia but it's in the tools icon,
maybe the games designers just missed it. Anyway, you can get paving at the
shop for 200 coins for 100 pieces and you can hold up to 500 pieces. To lay
paving down tap the tool icon then tap the paving icon, paving works the same
way as grass seed but you can only put it on dirt. To remove paving use the
shovel like you would to remove grass.


I listed all of the different the tools below except paving because I have said
eveything I can about it.

|                        |  Shovels        [SHOV11]  |                        |
+------------------------+===========================+------------------------+

Becaues the shovel is broken into two parts I made two difforent lists. One for
handles and one for heads.

                               H A N D L E S
                               -------------

This list is broken into only two sections, name and level. Name is the name of
the handle and level is what you get it at. You are given all of the handles
except the Platinum Handle, which you have to buy at Ivors shop for 1125 coins.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       Name: Freebie Handle                  Level: One
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       Name: Iron Handle                    Level: Two
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       Name: Bronze Shovel Handle           Level: Four

                                 ---------

It's the same deal with this list but three sections this time, name, level and
does. Name is the name of the head, level is what level you get it at and does
is what the head lets you do. Again you are given all of the heads except the
Dastardos Head with you buy at Ivors shop for 2100 coins.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Name: Freebie Head         Level: One      Does: It does nothing special
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Name: Pond Head            Level: Four     Does: You can dig ponds
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Name: Treecutter Head      Level: Five     Does: You can chop down trees

+------------------------+===========================+------------------------+

This list is set up into two parts, name and from. Name is the name of the
fertilizer,and from is what you can get the fertilizer from. If fruit or
veggies go bad then you won't be able to make fertilizer with them.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Name: Red Fertilizer           From: Apple, Carrot, Chili, Pumpkin
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Name: Blue Fertilizer          From: Turnip, Blackberry, N.Shade Berry

+------------------------+===========================+------------------------+

I've set this list into four parts, name, level, cost and does. Name is the
name of the watering can, level is what level you can get it at, cost is what
you pay for it and does is what the watering can can do.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Rusty           Level: One    Cost: 0     Does: It does nothing special
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Tin             Level: Two    Cost: 225   Does: Holds more water
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Gold            Level: Three  Cost: 750   Does: Holds more water
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Name: Glass           Level: Five   Cost: 1575  Does: Doesn't run out of water
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

|                        |  Grass Seeds    [GRAS14]  |                        |
+------------------------+===========================+------------------------+

With only two grass seeds this is a sort list. It's set up into four parts,
name, level, cost and does. Name is the name of the grass seed, level is what
level you get it at, cost is what you pay for it and does is what the grass
seed does.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Name: Short Grass     Level: One     Cost: 0       Does: Makes short grass
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Name: Long Grass      Level: Two     Cost: 225     Does: Makes long grass

 Garden Help                                                        [GARD15]
_______________________________________________________________________________

In this section you will see what decorations and pinatas you should put in
your garden to help your plants, how plants affect some pinatas, tips on
getting coins and other things.



Decorations
-----------

There are four decorations that can affect your garden in some way, the most
famous of these is the Captain's Cutlass which will keep out all of the
ruffians from you garden. The three other decorations are the Dastardos Scarer,
Lantern O Loot and the Water Waiver. the Dastardos Scarer will make it take
longer for dastardos to get to your garden which will help if you have a sick
pinata. If you have a Lantern O Loot in your garden it will increase the value
of coins found in the garden and if you have a Water Waiver in your garden it
will cut in half the amount of water plants take to grow.


Pinatas
-------

Besides the three pinatas that you get produce from and the taffly there are
two other pinatas that can help in your garden. The first one is the shellybean
which will eat any seeds you leave on the ground, that might sound bad but if
you have a lot of weed seeds in your garden then it will eat them for you. The
second one is the cocoadile which can help with your flowers and vegetables, if
you direct it to a growing plant it will cry on it, which works the same way as
using fertilizer.


Evolving
--------

There are nine pinatas that you can evolve into new pinatas by using plants,
five of them need to eat flowers, three need to eat fruit and the last one
needs to eat a veggie. Once a pinata evolves it can't change back so be careful
when you evolve a pinata. The evolved form will be in Gretchens shop so you can
buy more of them instead of just evolving. Note that you have to feed the
lickatoad an N.Shade Berry then hit it with the shovel to evolve it. Here is a
list of the pinatas that evolve and what you need to feed them to make it
happen:


       Sparrowmint    >  Buttercup      >  Candary
      --------------------------------------------------------------
       Quackberry     >  Gooseberry     >  Juicgoose
      --------------------------------------------------------------
       Newtgat        >  Chilli         >  Salamango
      --------------------------------------------------------------
       Horstachio     >  Blackberry     >  Zumbug
      --------------------------------------------------------------
       Flutterscotch  >  Poppy          >  Red Flutterscotch
      --------------------------------------------------------------
       Flutterscotch  >  Bluebell       >  Blue Flutterscotch
      --------------------------------------------------------------
       Flutterscotch  >  Buttercup      >  Yellow Flutterscotch
      --------------------------------------------------------------
       Flutterscotch  >  Watercress     >  Green Flutterscotch
      --------------------------------------------------------------
       Lickatoad      >  N.shade Berry  >  Shovel Hit  >  Lackatoad



Coin Tips
---------

There are a few easy ways to make coins with plants, such as growing a lot of
trees and bushes then selling the fruit, using fertilizer on flowers or veggies
and selling the seeds that seedos gives you are great ways to make some coins.
I believe the best way to get coins is to plant a lot of orchids and fertilize
them, if you have a gooseberry bush and a taffly or a cocoadile then the
fertilizing part will be easy.


Sprinkling
----------

When you get to level four you can hire a sprinkling, a sprinkling is someone
who will come into your garden and water your plants so you don't have to. It
costs 400 coins to hire a sprinkling and if you don't like having to watch your
plants then she's the best thing for you. If you want to get rid of your
sprinkling just select it then tap on the crossed out icon and pick yes. The
sprinkling will start work at 6AM and end work at 6PM.
