The Greenhouse Venue comes equipped with the Plants vs. Zombies™ Sunflower and SwiftGro Gardening Station. The venue is also equipped with Seed spawners, so you are able to collect rare and special seeds.
Plants vs. Zombies™ Sunflower
The Plants vs. Zombies™ Sunflower is a new form of garden fertilizer, that has a few new tunes to make you dance. You can find the Sunflower in buy mode under “Outdoor Activities” for 75 Simoleons. The Sunflower can be used by Sims Child-Elder.
The Sunflower provides the following uses:
♦ Fertilizer – When gardening, the sunlight provides outstanding fertilizer for your plants.
♦ Sunlight – The Sunflower produces sunlight that can be used for fertilizing plants, or used in the compost when you have the SwiftGro Gardening Station installed.
♦ Dance Partner – Put your dancing shoes on and click the sunflower!
♦ Graaains! for Zombies – When you have the Sims 3 Supernatural Expansion installed, Zombies can feed off the Sunflowers.
♦ Plant Growth Boost – When you have the SwiftGro Gardening Station installed, you can use the sunlight to boost the growth level of your plants. If your plant is only one cycle away from being fully grown, the sunlight will speed up the process.
SwiftGro Gardening Station
The SwiftGro Gardening Station serves as a greenhouse, with automatic sprinklers and a compost. You can find the Gardening Station in buy mode under “Misc. Plumbing” for 500 Simoleons. The Gardening Station can be used by Sims Child-Elder.
The Gardening Station provides the following uses:
♦ Automatic Sprinkler System – When your plants are inside the Garden Station, they will never wilt or dry!
♦ Talk – Improve the quality of your plants, and boost your social motive by talking to all your plants through the megaphone.
♦ Open/Use Compost – Place fertilizer materials into the compost, and use the compost to fertilize all your plants at once.
♦ Plant Growth Boost – When you have the Plats vs. Zombies Sunflower installed, you can use the sunlight to boost the growth level of your plants. If your plant is only one cycle away from being fully grown, the sunlight will speed up the process.
♦ Identify Seeds – Typically seeds cannot be identified until they are planted and past their 2nd growth cycle. With the Gardening Station, Sims can now try to identify seeds before they plant them! Not every attempt is successful, but as your Sim levels up in the gardening skill, their chances of successful identification increases.
