Red face Easy cash

This is my guide on how to make alot of money and fast!

1. Breed - Their are a ton of animals that could have offspring fast ( like the worms ) and they are worth 100 each. After you breed 10 of them you just made 1000 cc.
2. Evolve - Make species evolve to get money. The second version of a pinata is worth about twice as much as normal. ( the easiest would be the toad because it makes you alot of money and it is easy) See the thread at the top for more info on evolveing.

3.Plants - To tell the truth I think this is the best way to earn money. Buy a TON of any plant ( something like a pumpkin or corn ) then plant it. Buy some fertilizer from the general store ( or the special one from the unlockable store after giving the begger one thousand cc ) and use three right off the bat.Soon you will have a nice big plant that will sell for something like 400 cc

4.Sell - Don`t be a pack rat. If your garden is over crowded sell some things. Some rare pinatas are worth a good sum ( the chewnicorn is worth I like 7 thousand? Correct me if I am wrong ) But you will only find those rarely. Things like the taffy can be sold for a little extra cc on the side.

5.GLITCH - This is the one that most people choose. It may take some time but it works. First of all you need to buy a Gaherling. Next when it comes into your garden you go to the general store, and search for the most expensive seed. Then act like you are going to buy it, but only place it with the X button. The worker will pick it up but you wont buy it! So if you unlock the Oak tree seed that is 300cc and you will be rich in no time!

6.Buy nothing - Save your money for something good. If you spend it all at once in the start you will not have enough for the needs of your pinatas and romance needs. That is the key to making money, save money to earn more. If you waste your money on something worthless you will in the end fall

7.Level up- Leveling up is a nice way to make some cash. Although leveling up does not give you money right away.You will though unlock better pinatas and better plants ( the oak being the best/most expensive)

-------Other ideas and thoughts-----------

-Send a friend invite to Dashman232 for money and needs, I have every achievement but the 50 hours that I am working on.

-Help out your friends, don`t play the game alone. Get your friend help you make money.

-Care for your pinatas. When I played once, my most expensive one I spend a ton of money on ran off, causing me alot of money.


Thanks for reading, if you have any questons or comments please post.

I usually started by selling fertilized chilis as well. It was fast and pretty easy cash.

Later on I found Orchids to be my cash cow. I'd plant about 35 or so at a time, fertilize them 3 times each, and sell each plant for 1800.

When I first started this game, my main cash flow was growing plants, fertilizing them and either selling the fruit/vegetables that I got from them or selling the entire tree at once. This helped me to build up a lot of cash and in a fairly quick time period.

Also I breeded the Fourheads and sold them all because they are worth 3600 cc a piece. I went from 40,000 cc to about 70 - 75,000 cc in a short period of time. No matter how much I posed in the forums, I couldn't get anyone to help me with this game. I'm surprised that I felt generous enough to help out my fellow x360a.org community members.

That seems very odd. Did you post for help in the right spots? And did you offer money or pinatas for exchange? We are all usually very helpful to others...

Regardless, I'm glad you helped out here... Do not get the wrong attitude or idea about this place.

If you still need anything I will be glad to help.

* I really do not like giving people new to the game rare pinatas and money because they should play the game first and then go for the achievements. *

Fertilized Orchids are a cash cow.


Once they are done growing, hack the flower, sell the 4 flowerheads for 1800, and then replant the 4 seeds that it gives you, fertilize them and just wash, rinse and repeat. You can make a boatload, off of 1 seed and the the 3 hits of fertilizer everytime.

Yeah, that's what I did. Buy 3-5 seeds, plant them close together in a place where you have a lot of room.

You want to plant them together so you save on the fertilizer. When you spray one, you actually can touch another and save ! But not TOO close, because plants don't grow right ...you'll find the better space to use.

Use special fertilizer, and the best watering can helps go faster. Use fertilizer 3X each, and water.

When the flowers blossom, you hack it and plant the seeds (3x), sell the flowers (3x). You get constant cash, plus your garden extends by itself.

When you have too much, just sell the plants that take too much space.

When I discovered that, I never ran out of $...
Plus: the orchids are beautiful !!

The way I get my money is plant some flowers to get tafflys then buy a firebrand. Select the Taffly and then select the Firebrand. While the Taffly is on fire use your watering can on it. Then you can sell the red hot for 2.1k and it can be used for the evolver achievement.

Money Can Buy You Happiness

I follow the "3P" rule. You sell the Plants, Pinatas and Produce. For the plants I usually Fertilized the Birds of Paradise and the Orchids. For the Pinatas I would usually sell the offspring of the Master Romanced Species. And for the Produce, I kept a couple of buzzlegums for the honey. It's a good 100 CC here and there. I really can't remember if I picked this up somewhere or just made it up. I hope this helps

EDIT: I just remembered I got it from an Episode of Friends.

I do the same thing.

If anyone is wondering what we're talking about, grab a taffly, and direct it to a fire brand. Then, when it's on fire, whip out your watering can and quickly water it, and it'll turn into a redhott! They sell for 2100 a peice.

Really easy. Also, you don't have to do anything to get taffly, just have a whole load of flowers and tafflys will keep coming in.

NOTE: Don't wait to long to water them.

Great tip with the chillies (thanks)......

After reading this thread i set up a new garden and made half of it soil. then i hired the sprinkler and went havoc with the chilli seeds and planted them in pairs and i found i could make 4 sets of chillies which is around 40 chillies. Now 30 of them you will have time to sprinkle 3 sets of fertiliser on each pair and the other 10 or so will sell for 100/200 but you get 30 times 400 ones so altogether in around 2 min's you can get 13,500 a hit give or take a few.

Who would of thought hard-core gamers would be chatting about fluffy animals and plant growing techniques with deep enthusiasm i might add.

I know alot of people have mention orchids but you can also sell the stem so if you plant a seed fertilze x3 then tap it four times you can actually sell 4x plant heads 3x seeds and 1x stem therefore getting more money
but you have to sellect the stem quickly or it dissapears

i found a nice way to do cash:

buy a plant: called venuspinatatrap its a red one 79c i think
plant it and wait until its grown... then destroy it with the shovel
and it will split in 3-5 seeds and one yellow head.

sell the head for 360c
and plant the seeds...
wait for the growing up and do it again and again.!
u can also sell sompe seeds they are also worth 79c

hope it helps!

I found that doing large amounts of the bird of paradise plant was very profitable and using the orange fertilizer instead of the super all purpose one saves a fair bit of money
