[Gardening] Okay, is plant crossing "broken"?

    I am just starting plant crossing. I successfully pollinated a plain water plant with pollen from a plain tribarrel cactus - trying to get seeds for a plain prickly cactus. The result? Plain poppies seeds.

    I looked again at the Stratics webpage on plant crossing, thinking that perhaps I needed to pollinate the tribarrel cactus from the water plant - but it does not say anything about the 'direction' of the pollination. When I looked up what it takes to get poppies, it does not list either the tribarrel cactus or the water plant as a parent. :(

    Help?

    Ack, I'd love to, but I'm going to have to wait for someone who actually knows what they're talking about to come along, because I have never ever cross pollinated. Sorry :(

    The cross-breeding code for plants was been FUBAR for at least over a year. If you are looking for a specific seed, it might be best to ask the gardeners on your shard for it.

    Bummer. I play Siege, so I guess I start building new charts.

    Maybe that explains why the crosses I've made haven't turned up what I expected.

    I'm going to post my first post on this on the UHall forum. I imagine this is pretty low priority for the developers, but it won't hurt to post it anyway. Thx.

    It's my understanding that crossing with cacti is the broken part. I haven't done too much crossing lately, only crossing plants of the same variety trying (in vain) for white mutants. But I don't think I've seen errors in crossing plants other than cactus.
