Light-bulbTrees, Orchards and Confusion about Seedlings...

Please_share
by Karyn Horrigan - Dec 27, 2010 Star_s2,706 views

Hi again!

There seems to be some confusion over the mystery seedlings which come from our orchards.

People are obviously expecting that if they have an orchard full of mango trees, they will post a mango tree seedling out to their friends when sharing on the feed.

If your orchard is full of mangoes (just as an example) and you produce a seedling, YOU get a mango tree seedling, but the one which is posted to the feed when you share (as far as I can find out) is truly a 'mystery' seedling - it can be anything.  If I'm wrong, please let me know Laughing

Will you be expanding this post?

I would love the white rainbow tree. I'm 60 years old and love breeding the special trees. Would anybody be willing to send me a rainbow tree because it will then seed into a giant tree and so on and I can regift those trees back to you.

Hi, it WAS the case that whatever trees were in your orchard, you shared one of those trees with neighbours too, as well as yourself...this worked until a short time ago. Now, it seems to give a mystery seedling to neighbours and the specific seedling from orchard to yourself. This seems to be a very recent change :( But at least you can still share ONE particular tree when it grows up from a seedling :)

Ooh Dave thank you for the info on the levels - I had no idea!  As always... you rock!

Level 1 trees give level 2 seeds
Level 2 trees give level 2 seeds
When you harvest your orchards the seedlings will go into the gift box in the order you harvest your orchards that doesn't change.
When you post a seedling into the feed then it is whatever Zynga wants that seed to be nobody can control that, you can say what orchard it came from but it could be a Granny Smith once it has grown.
The only seedlings that will be what they are suppose to be are the ones in your gift box.

orchards are great cos they occupy less space, disadvantage you got to harvest them one by one as using aborists does not work

I did not know that. I figured that if I harvested a seedling, and got a specific tree, that the same seedling posted for a friend would be that specific tree. Go figure; but at least after you finish watering the seedling, you get a chance to post that new tree as one available for friends. (or is that random too?)

This is just another ploy by Zynga to get us to buy these rare tree's. We think that if we put them in the orchards we get the seedling that is supposed to come from that tree. Well it's a load of crap. I have one orchards just full of mint candy tree's, bubble gum trees, etc. So I should get a great seedling right??? Wrong I posted it as it being one of those seedlings and one person got a granny smith. Sucks. So why did I blow my Farmcash on these dumb tree's if I can't even get that seedling. People were getting the disco ball trees and mint candy trees from seedlings before they were even released. I had that really fancy ornament trees before it was released.
So why say what seedling comes from the trees if they aren't going to it???
Ulitmately, the orchards are useless. I went from having over 20, down to 3!

Still confuse!

I harvest my 'nice' orchards first...then take the seedlings out of the gift box and finish the rest.  That way when I water them, I can post those trees (disco, etc) to  my friends :)

Thank you -- I did NOT realize this.

You are perfectly right!!! That's the way that Zynga uses for making others purchasing stuff. Some neighbours are still convinced to be sure what seedling are they posting. Everyone should know that!

Picture?type=square

yup, you are right! i notisce thath a long time ago! but you must know thath on youe farm you get what you have in your orchard.

That's interesting. I assumed it was the same thing I got. I just thought it was a mystery seedling because they didn't know what it was yet.
