A new Genshin Impact event has players testing out their green thumbs by planting flowers in Teyvat.
Known as the "Dreams of Bloom" event, players have been tasked with planting and growing all types of foliage across the world. From Sakura blossoms to useful herbs and everything in between, those who want to participate will need to learn the proper way to sow a seed to complete the challenges.
Dreams of Bloom kicked off on Nov. 12 and will run through to Nov. 18. Players need to be at least Adventure Rank 30+, have completed the Ritou Escape Plan questline, and already unlocked the Serenitea Pot. The rewards are the standard Mora, Primogems, Enhancement Ore, and a bit of Amethyst shards.
How to Plant Flowers in Genshin Impact
The first step of the event is to plant seeds. This is why players need to have already unlocked the Serenitea Pot as it is the gateway to Genshin Impact's Gardening system.
Once they have the pot, they'll need to purchase Gardening Fields from the Realm Depot. Fields can be placed wherever the player would like it to be. There are three distinct field types and each one will only allow certain seeds to be planted within it.
Next, they'll need seeds. These can be picked up in the overworld by equipping a Seed Dispensary and then going about the normal tasks. Typically, each collected item will offer a corresponding seed.
To plant the seeds, simply step up to the appropriate field and wait for the "Plant in the [field]" prompt to appear. Pressing the prompted button will bring up the planting menu which allows players to choose the type of seed they want to plant. Each field has four plots to place seeds in.
The field will now display the correct plant image icon placed by the player when approached—if done correctly. It will also have the time left to grow stated plainly which can vary from hours to days depending on the plant.
Players can, of course, clear the plot if they choose the wrong seed or don't have enough time to wait for it to grow.
Grown plants can be harvested by walking up to them and picking them as if they were in the general map.
