    but I can only get bright red, yellow & blue. whats the secret of getting normal ones?

    Ok lets see...

    flowery x flowery = spider tree

    To get:

    DULL PRIMARY - cross primary you want and secondary with primary color (IE red + orange)
    BRIGHT PRIMARY - cross two of the primary color you want either bright or dull (red + bright red)
    DULL SECONDARY - cross two different primaries (red and blue to make purple)
    BRIGHT SECONDARY - cross two of the same secondaries either bright or plain (orange + bright orange)

    You probably need more cactus seeds with more variety. So take some of the spider tree seeds you have and cross them to get the flowery cactus you need. These should be the ones you are missing if you just have the flower primary cactus seeds:

    red spider tree x red spider tree = B RED CACTUS
    red spider tree x yellow spider tree = ORANGE CACTUS
    orange spider x orange spider = B ORANGE CACTUS
    yellow x yellow = BRIGHT YELLOW CACTUS
    yellow x blue = GREEN CACTUS
    green x green = BRIGHT GREEN CACTUS
    blue x blue = BRIGHT BLUE CACTUS
    blue x red = PURPLE CACTUS
    purple x purple = BRIGHT PURPLE CACTUS

    I have read over and over the info on these and I just don't get it :wall: I have never been able to figure out how to xbreed the plants :blushing:and would love to learn...is there an easy way to understand it? I really would like to get some of the different colored spider trees as well without having to pay someone else 300k for them :coco: Thanks in advance :p

    The following crosses using either bright or dull parent plants will result in dull color seeds:

    A secondary color crossed with a primary (yellow, blue, red) color will yield the primary color:
    Purple (dull or bright) x Yellow (dull or bright) = Dull Yellow
    Orange + Blue = Dull Blue
    Green x Red = Dull Red

    Anytime you cross 2 plants that are both of secondary colors (green, orange, purple), you will get dull colored seeds in the primary base color:
    Green x Orange = Yellow (it took blue x yellow to get green and red x yellow to get orange, hence yellow is the base color)
    Green x Purple = Blue
    Orange x Purple = Red

    if it helps - I wrote out a guide that you can follow to get all the colored (new) plants - it's about 2/3rds the way down this page:

    http://uo.stratics.com/php-bin/show_content.php?content=30919

    (it's best to let your first 3 cactuses from boglings, red, yellow, blue to self pollinate so you can have 8 seeds to work with before you start crossing)

    Awesome guide! Thank you for putting it together. My first red, blue and yellow flowery cacti popped today, and I appreciate having all the information ready to go once I get the self-pol seeds up and going.

    I crossed a bunch of tribarrels while growing a ton of plants to prep for the new stains - and got different colored flowering cacti.

    I *know* I did not have any flowering cacti other than plain blue, and I only grew out the 2 seeds I got off of boglings for those.

    Is that expected - that they're a product of a tribarrel cross?!

    :pint:

    There is some kind of problem with crossing cactus right now. I think you get weird results. You might be able to find someone on your shard who can supply you with the seeds of all the different colored cactus you need. :)
