Eager for more Fae Farm guides? Suddenly painfully aware that you don’t know what you’re doing day-to-day? No problem. Here’s how to get more inventory space to help you carry around more garbage, how to get sand, and how to sell more items each day than the market allows for.

How to get pink flowers in Fae Farm - Fae Farm cross-breeding explained

Fae Farm’s pink flowers come from the in-game crossbreeding mechanic. Rosalind, the town’s flower seed merchant, will introduce you to this with her first quest — but she won’t be too detailed in her explanation of how it works.

To get pink flowers in Fae Farm, you just need to plant white and red flowers of any type by each other. It works very similarly to Animal Crossing flower breeding if you’ve played that.

How to grow pink flowers in Fae Farm

For a foolproof setup for growing pink flowers in Fae Farm, use the following method:

  • Place nine Flower Soil Beds in a 3x3 grid on your farm.
  • Alternate sowing white and red flower seeds into the outer flower beds, leaving the centre bed empty.
  • Water the seeds for four days — the flowers will sprout on the fourth watering.
  • Leave the flowers for a few days. Don’t harvest or water them.
  • The centre Flower Soil Bed will eventually show signs of a seed having been planted.
    • You can harvest the surrounding flowers at this point if you want.
  • Water the seed for four days — a pink flower of either type will appear on the fourth watering

To turn in the quest, you won’t need to harvest the pink Fae Farm flower. You can leave it where it is and crossbreed it with other colours by repeating the process.

As you can see from the picture above, you don't need to follow the 9x9 step to grow a Pink Flower. Fae Farm crossbreeding works so long as there is an empty Flower Soil Bed beside to different, adjacent flowers. Follow the idea of colour theory and mixing to work out other colours.

For even more Fae Farm guides, you might want to know how to fast travel using Pedestal Seals. It’s a great way to get around, helping you get more done each day. And if you’re heading into chapter five, learning how to upgrade the net will be important.
