    I was visiting on Pacific today, and was invited to view some plants that had just bloomed.

    Alissa said she had no idea she was getting colored bonsai plants until they bloomed today. Said she had been crossing some green peculiar cactus with other plants, hoping for black and white mutants. The menu is from the yellow bonsai, and shows it will produce seeds and can be cross-pollinated.

    new bug? or some she had produced earlier?

    During our "fun with plants" time I made a blue bonsai. I'd be willing to trade seeds with someone who made other colors. I'm on Legends.

    They are from peculiar seeds. Group 1 — Dryad, Titan, Tsuki Wolf.

    *Plants a bunch of peculiar cacti to cross pollinate and uhh... "test"* :D

    This is fixed now though, right? I mean I'd love a bunch of bugged plant seeds just like the next gardener, tho I'm already thinking about my poor plant house storage...

    I got my hopes up today when I was planting seeds. I identified sugar canes, planted and when I moused over the bowl said "a peculiar bamboo plant". I SO wish that was the case, but I'm betting it's just a mistake.

    Regarding the bonsai, I'm confused too, Sarsmi. I thought all of the cactus and bonsai bugs were fixed. Can somone confirm if these are old or new seeds and plants being used?

    Yeah it's a mistake. It still grows into a sugar cane. I had the same hopes in the same sort of scenario. ;)

    I had a fresh, peculiar flowered cactus pop. It can't cross-pollinate, or be cross-pollinated. It gets the message about being a mutant plant.

    So maybe older ones from before the fix can still be used to cross-pollinate?

    Darn! I was hoping. I wish Sak would just leave these things in. They don't harm anyone and it's a lot of fun for us.

    Bonkers for Bonsai on Napa...please come take a peek (at 100 different colorful bonsai) on the top floor. House is below bagball court on west side of road to South Luna (at 84o55'N x 25o35'W). No idea about post Pub57 flowery cacti, but all the old ones except the naturalist quest colors still work!

    Neato! I'm not on NAPA but just got around to planting my pre Pub57 titan cacti -like- the other day -- they're only on day 3 --- kewl !! Glad buddy had some stashed -- Oh but tell me -- did you cross pollinate with other colors or did it just happen !? I planted some other seeds along side thinking I may have to mess around with that... "Bonkers for Bonsai" - That's funny *giggles*

    Thanks to Erica3 and her friends laying the groundwork in this post:http://vboards.stratics.com/showpost.php?p=979077&postcount=13 You'll need different colored flowery cacti that can pollinate. Just cross them with 7 day old plants in her list. Still a chance for black or white, or a normal crossed color bonsai. Sure hope this bug isn't squashed!

    Those pink, magenta, turquoise, and fire bonsai were made by crossing legacy naturalist quest plants with flowery cacti of the same color. That easter egg (too much fun to be a bug!) was nixed (doesn't feel like it was fixed) in the last publish.

    It was posted that the bug was fixed, and I tested with a new/freshly grown flowery cactus and could not cross-pollinate to/from it. But yeah.. it seems like there's still a way to do it. My *guess* is old seeds still exist? Dunno.

    Yep it's from old seeds. The old seeds are still able to cross polinate when they are grown thus creating more seeds... still no black or white bonzai for me grrr.

    I have got to remember to not put plants into deco mode just because a bug is supposedly fixed. *grr*

    So...

    This was from a previous bug which was fixed. But as you've noticed, players who have kept some of the bugged seeds/plants are still able to do this. Needless to say I'm not a big fan of those colored bonsai, but since most of you seem to enjoy them, we had a little design pow wow and agreed not to revert the remaining bugged plants.

    Enjoy!

    If any of you end up with green bonsai I'd be more than willing to try and get some gold together on another shard in order to have a couple. I stocked up on a bunch of colored bonsai before I transferred off of Napa, but there weren't any black, white or green. :( I do have gold on Pac, Atlantic and I think Chessy still. I'd just really love the green bonsai cause I have that whole green thing happening with the name and all that. :)
     
  27. I am assuming that the plants needed are not from the monsters but the ones we normally grow?
     
  28. so we can't grow them now? only from the bug one that are alreay out there? would have been fun to see some color trees

    Seems like an eternity ago, but the colorful flowery cacti were grown from unidentifiable seeds from boglings and bog monsters. Those blue, red, yellow, and plain cacti were never labeled as peculiar; and they would give seeds and pollinate other plants. Also crossing legacy cacti sometimes resulted unexpectedly in new flowery cacti. To get the "Oooooh colors!" bonsai (and rarely a black or white mutant bonsai), you would use the funky cacti to pollinate 7 or 8 day old legacy plants using the color chart as usual. No idea if the post pub57 bogling seeds have been fixed, or this ability still remains; and if it does exist, whether it stays after the upcoming pub58.

    I can confirm that the plain cacti can still be found as of pub 57 - I didn't start gardening until a few weeks ago, and I collected all my seeds from boglings in New Haven.

    I'm not sure of the parentage of these, I'll have to figure it out with a little deductive work.

    HOWEVER, today, these bloomed on Chesapeake, I have two (and the plant that has the seeds is still in one of my boxes, I just have to figure out which one) purple bonsais, and they will apparently produce seeds! This one I've cross pollinated with the other purple bonsai. I'm going to put this other in a box until I've gotten better at this gardening thing!

    Aha! I found my plain cactus, and I did NOT set it to decorative! It still has 8 seeds on it, and I believe I found the mother plant... a blue pampas grass with 6 purple seeds left on it.

    I'll get a pot started to see if this is the plant these babies came off of.

    Quick question:

    Those of you who have sold some of these pretties, how much did you sell them for? I don't want to undersell myself, but I hate overcharging.

    I bought a bunch of colored bonsai for 10k each on Napa before I transferred back to Origin.

    Flora,

    Did you ever find your green bonsai that you were looking for? I have a few "bright green" bonsai on Pacific if you are still looking...

    Dragonchilde Guest

    I can't answer #1 for certain - however, ALL of the seeds I have, with the exception of a bag of "peculiar" ones I found at the Haven bank, I got myself as monster loot or from breeding others.

    Muu Bin,

    No I haven't gotten a green bonsai yet. I have a little gold on Pac though if you still have the bonsai.

    Alissa said she had no idea she was getting colored bonsai plants until they bloomed today. Said she had been crossing some green peculiar cactus with other plants, hoping for black and white mutants. The menu is from the yellow bonsai, and shows it will produce seeds and can be cross-pollinated.[/QUOTE]

    To start out, the house in question that started this thread is mine. This may be a bit out of date with the new publish, but it took me along time to figure out how I got the green flowery cactus that started this. No, it wasn't some old seed I had laying around. I was breeding legacy plants trying for mutant black and whites. Aparantly crossing the various cactus gives you a chance at a colored or plain flowery cactus. That is how I got the green flowery cactus. I crossed it with all the legacy plants I had growing at the time, and got colored bonzi from some of them as a result.

    The same day I showed these plants I had someone else show up and say they were going to report me for an exploit. I paged a GM. I had no desire to loose my accounts over a breeding fluke I didn't even know was possible. The GM said not to worry, the colored flowery cacti and colored bonzi did not give me any advantage over another player, so they are not concidered an expoit.

    Aparently colored flowery cacti also come from bogling seeds. However with the new publish I don't know if they still do, or if you can still get them from crossing legacy cacti, or if you will still get colored bonzi from crossing flowery cacti with legacy plants. I also don't know if the colored bonzi seeds I still have not grown will continue to produce breedable colored bonzi.

    I hope this answers all the questions, I still haven't had my coffee this morning, so sorry if I missed something.:sleep2:

    Thank you, Lady Dark. It can't hurt to try and see if the the new pub fixed these.

    I find it funny that the GM said you are okay because the bug(s) don't give you an advantage over anyone, yet they are not allowed to stay in game despite so many gardeners enjoying these little bonuses. :)

    Hi Flora,

    I'm not really into the gold thing - I much prefer trades. If you have any duplicate colored bonsais I would be more than happy to trade with you. If not, then perhaps some other kind of trade for a plant or seed that you think might be of comparable interest.

    Muu Bin,

    I haven't played much on Pac, but I'll see what I may have stashed in my bank box. I'll try to get time to log on this weekend. :)

    The seed I collected from the suspected mother plant did inded bloom into another purple bonsai today... and I'm about to plant a bright purple seed I collected from one of my cross-pollinated purples.

    Now, I'd love to get more colors, with the existing seeds - but I'm not sure how I would do that.
    I'm fairly sure the father is a plain flowery cactus. But - I can't be 100% sure! I might cross that one with one of my regular cacti. I just noticed I have a bunch of reds. Man, I wish my initial crossing efforts had been a little more organized. I stumbled on something neat, and have no idea how I did it! Ah well, at least I know where my purples came from. Poor fatherless things.

    If anyone has any colored bonsai to trade on Chesapeake, I'd love to get some more colors.

    Dragonchilde Guest

    aha! I just realized where it came from. I have a bunch ofred flowery cactus -- that I didn't even realize were red flowery cacti. *eyeroll* Mystery solved. Red flowery cactus + blue ponytailpalm = purple bonsai.

    Sweet.

    And now I have a huge crop of red cacti of various kinds, and I'll hopefully get some fun stuff out of them.

    I sell my colored bonzi and colored flower cactus for 10,000 each. I just got a white and 2 blacks, but haven't decided what I am going to sell them for.

    Last breeding produced a ton of yellow and bright yellow, a few orange, and several green. 2 days and I get to try again.
