NIER Achievements

Legendary Gardener

You successfully cultivated the legendary flower.   
Hopefully you have a garden that is a 3x5 grid by completing the quests mentioned in the Road Map, or this could take longer. The "Legendary Flower" is a White Moonflower Seed, you will receive the achievement as soon as you harvest one. You can buy Red, Blue, and Gold Moonflower Seeds in Seaport or other towns. Here are the possible combination's:

Blue + Gold = Indigo
Red + Gold = Peach
Indigo + Red = Pink
Peach + Pink = White

Be aware that a successful plant mix is rare, just like finding rare items. Just knowing the correct formula does not guarantee that it will work. The more chances you give yourself, the better odds you are of successfully mixing the plant.

Theories on mixing plants:
1. Plant both colors directly next to each other.
2. Plant one color, let it die, harvest the seeds, and plant the next color over top of it.

I suggest doing a mix of both. This is an example on how to get White Moonflower Seeds, so replace the colors I use for the formula you need. Get enough Peach and Pink Moonflower Seeds, and plant them as follows:

Pe Pi Pe Pi Pe
Pi Pe Pi Pe Pi
Pe Pi Pe Pi Pe

Save the game, advance the system clock by 2 days. Since signing into Xbox Live updates your clock to the current time, make sure you unplug your Ethernet cable or wireless adapter so you do not sign in. Load your game, harvest all seeds and do it in reverse:

Pi Pe Pi Pe Pi
Pe Pi Pe Pi Pe
Pi Pe Pi Pe Pi

It shouldn't take too long using this method, but keep repeating until you harvest a white moonflower seed and achievement unlocks.

Requires peach and pink moonflower seeds.

PEACH: place seeds in garden like this

Wait 4 hours and water
Wait 2 days and harvest the seeds.
Some of the golds will turn into peach. [1 in 5 chance]

To get pink you must get indigo first.
INDIGO: place seeds in garden like this

Repeat steps from peach.
Some of the blue will turn into indigo (light blue in color) [1 in 5 chance]

PINK: plant seeds in garden like this

Repeat steps for peach and indigo
Some of the reds will turn into pink [1 in 10 chance]

Repeat steps for peach, indigo, and pink.
Some of the pink will turn into lunar tears [1 in 50 chance]

After you obtain lunar tears DON'T TURN THEM INTO PLANTS TO SELL.
instead plant them and do the steps to harvest seeds.
At the very minimum you will get only 1 seed but occasionally you will get 2 or 3.

I have a full field of lunar tears that I grow to sell. This will help with the 1,000,000 gold achievement as well if you didn't use wheat to get it.

I'd like to make a point on this. I speant 2 hours trying the method of replanting after harvesting each one with the formula

Did not get one white. But I tried a different method and got 2 on my first try. Yes it does involve umplugging from xbox live as well.
bl stands for blank, empty spot.
First I planted

then I advanced one day when the flowers have bloomed. Now is when you fill the empty spots with new seeds and don't harvest the flowers.


Then advance 1 day to harvest the fallen seeds and replant, or advance 2 days and see if the new seeds you have planted turned into white seeds.

In case anyone is wondering, picking the seeds ALSO gives you the achievement, so set up your offline clocks accordingly.

Strangely, I tried various methods. I tried to do Abunai's method and it didn't work for me for the while flower, HOWEVER, during the day after doing Pe blank blank Pi Pe to plant the extra 6, one of the Peach turned into a white flower. I didn't touch it, and planted the other 6, saved, reconnected my cable, and came back. The white flower was dead, ready to be harvested for seeds. After grabbing my 2 seeds, I got the achievement.
