I always wondered what it would be like to grow pot. Thanks to Plant Tycoon, I was able to realize the financial possibilities and explore myself during a time of identity crisis. Thank you, Plant Tycoon. I would definitely recommend this simulator to anybody considering producing illicit products as a living.

This is such a charming simple little game. It's a waiting game, but a game of this type that you just buy, and have, and there's no microtransactions maybe contributes to how peaceful and simple and charming it is. It's essentially a little garden that you tend, and check back in on periodically. You can grow plants, and sell them to buy fertiizer and seeds and other such simple additions, or improve your shop to get more customers.

But the cornerstone of this game is the cross-breeding. You can cross-pollinate plants with each other to make new species, and those species are created according to specific rules. The game within a game is figuring out what those rules are, so you can eventually create any plant you want. You end up really feeling in control of your virtual garden. It's a beautiful game and I love it to bits.

Very simple yet fun game to kill time for whatever reason if you are bored or waiting for something. The plants also grow when you're not playing but you can at anytime on the menu screen make time faster, slower, or pause it if you happen to be too busy to play or free, whice is a plus for me. If you are not into relaxing or simple games, then I wouldn't recommend it.

I love this game because i can play while i am working or do some other things :D
Just put the seed in the pot, water it and leave it to grow then sell it in nursery.
If you saw me play it for a long time, that might be i'm AFK LOL

ชอบเกมนี้เพราะมันเล่นตอนทำงานได้เนี่ยล่ะ
แค่ใส่ปุ๋ย ยัดเมล็ดลงกระถาง รดน้ำ แล้วปล่อยทิ้งไว้รอมันโต
มาตัดแต่งใบเน่ากิ่งเน่าออกแล้วเอาไปขายแค่เนี้ยเอง
ถ้าเห็นเวลาเล่นฉันเยอะไม่ต้องแปลกใจ เล่นแล้วไม่อยู่นะแจ้ อิอิกำ
