PlantPets | Breeding Scheme

PlantPets creator Bruce Liebknecht has made some recent changes to the PlantPets website including a catalogue listing all the various plantpets available including pictures.  There is also a list of PlantPet breeders and a useful FAQ.  The transition to the new breeding scheme based on genes is also completed and an explanation on how the baby seeds are picked based on the genes is now available.

Plantpets give baby seeds every 52 days if kept at least 50% happy and 50% healthy. If some day either their happiness or their health is below 50% then that day is not counted.

The baby seed depends on the genes of the parent (see the genes in the catalog). The strength of each gene of the parent shows how likely is that gene to be definitely passed to a baby. When a baby is delivered the AI behind the breeding scheme looks at the genes of the parent and decides which genes will be definitely passed. Then it considers the pool of all plantpets which do have those genes (no matter the strength) and randomly picks one of them to be delivered as a baby seed.

If the parent is an elite plantpet then it will also deliver a randomly picked booster of size 1, 2, 3, 5 or 10 units after it has delivered the baby. The booster may come one or two minutes after the baby.
