Hi guys,Whats the zen garden plants for? Do u just grow and sell them? How do you know when they are fully grown?How do I unlock the extreme survival to get the achievement to get to level 40? Any tips to get there?Thanks in advance

1. Yeah I basically grow the Zen Garden Plants until I can sell them for $8.000. You know that they are fully grown when Crazy Dave would pay $8.000 / $10.000 (Aquarium & Mushrooms) / $3.000 (Marigolds) for them or if they glow golden. However you should keep some plants in order to collect their gold from time to time (the snail + chocolate will help you there). The Marigolds from Crazy Dave drop more money than other plants.

2. I think you mean Endless Survival: It's unlocked after you've completed every other Survival Mode successfully. I used this guide (http://dianaraquest.wordpress.com/2010/07/02/plants-vs-zombies-survival-endless-100-flags-setup/) and didn't have any problems at all.

Hope that helps.

The snail just collects coins in the zen garden. you feed him chocolate he goes faster. Also if you feed a plant chocolate it will drop coins faster.

You should also know that if you have 10 chocolates (max) then you have a better chance to get plants as drops in the game instead of chocolate.

Probably too late for you;

- Zen garden is good for farming money! You will find a lot of plants as you work towards unlocking Endless Survival; I've always found the Survival modes are very rewarding when it comes to giving you Zen Garden Plants...

- Especially if you do not but the snail. If you buy the snail you'll get enemies dropping chocolate randomly, and I swear that detracts from the Zen Garden plant drops. On the XB you really don't need the snail to help you gather money as your cursor attracts it at a good range...

- When you fertilise a plant and it gives you two blue diamonds, sell it immediately. It won't give you any more dosh, and sitting around and watering it/playing it music/spraying it is really just pointless. You make money faster by literally farming the flowers; selling them once they reach 'maturity'.

I did campaign once, battered the survival modes then fed teh plants in between each sesh of my 2nd campaign run. By the time I finished the 2nd run I had enough dosh to buy near-enough everything in the shop, save some of the house upgrades (which is fine by me, seeing as I seem to be the only person on my friends list with the game :O)

Basically just a way to make money. You spend maybe 3000 on a plant and sell it for 8000.

Zen Gardens awesome, but XBLA version is too easy. Took forever to get a lot of plants on PC. I never even got them all! But had all of XBLA's within the 1st week. Too Easy
