The simulation game "Plant Tycoon" starts you off with seeds from a few basic plants, and by growing and crossbreeding the flowers, you'll discover new and more valuable plant species. Ultimately, the goal is to create the Six Magic Plants of Isola, which fetch high prices and provide benefits to your nursery. While there's more than one way to breed each magic flower, the most direct route uses four common plants you receive at the beginning of the game.
