If you’ve ever tried growing plants in your garden, you know that it takes time and care to make sure a seed blossoms into a healthy plant. You have to make sure your plant has the right nutrients, enough water and sunlight. On top of that you have to watch out for ravenous insects and pests that may try to destroy your hard work. If that sounds like a lot of work, then don’t worry, there’s an app that will give you the same satisfaction of growing your own plants without having ever having to get your hands dirty.
The app I am referring to is an Android app called Sweet Garden. This app transforms your device into a make-shift garden that lets you cultivate your very own botanical masterpiece. The first thing you have to do is install the widget on your home screen before you can begin growing your plant. After you’ve successfully installed the widget and given your plant a name (yes, you really do need to give your plant a name), you can begin growing your plant with the seed given to you.
The tutorial walks you through the different things you can do to make your plant grow healthily. You have to do things such as water it, trim the weeds around it, spray pesticide and even play it music to put it in a good mood. You can also tap on the plant and caress it to show it love. This will make it happier and allow it to grow faster. For every task you complete, you get silver coins which can be used to buy fertilizer and other supplements. Just like in real life, it will take a while before your seed begins to show any signs of growth. The widget on your home screen will keep you updated on how your plant is doing so you don’t have to be in the apps user interface the whole time. The more you tend to your plant, the better it will grow. Once your plant is fully grown you don’t have to tend to it as much as it will develop a resistance to environmental factors around it.
Sweet Garden is surprisingly addictive despite its relatively slow pace. You’ll constantly find yourself checking up on your plant just so that you can make sure nothing’s happening to it. Once your plant starts blossoming, you can’t help but feel a great sense of satisfaction. If you’re and Android user then this is a must have app for your device.
