In one of Smurfette’s latest quests, players are asked to harvest 20 flower boxes. Much like previous flower box quests that some users may have encountered in the past, the wording can be very misleading. Simply harvesting 20 flower beds will not successfully complete the task. Although the instructions clearly state to harvest, only the mere act of planting is credited. Also users do not need multiple flower beds to plant Smurfette’s beautiful bouquet, one will suffice.
Despite the quest’s vague directions, there are several important requirements that must be met in order to complete this task. The first major step is to start with an empty flower bed. Roses already planted do not count. Players have to plant 20 flowers from scratch. If you don’t have any empty flower boxes then select a nearby bed and remove its contents. This can be done quickly by tapping on the desired box and choosing the remove icon located on the side of the menu. The tiny tab often resembles a red circle with a slash running through the center of it. A prompt will appear asking if you are sure you want to remove the item. Clicking yes automatically empties the bed.
The second step is where most players get stumped. Smurfette is extremely general in her wording which often leads users to believe they can plant any type of flower. Unfortunately that is not the case. There’s a glitch associated with this task that only credit users that plant red roses.
Players that attempted to save coins by planting inexpensive daisies were thoroughly disappointed. Varieties such as the daisy, chrysanthemums, tulips, and lilies are not tallied. To successfully tackle Smurfette’s quest and earn the XP reward players must plant red roses, then empty the flower bed, and repeat until all 20 roses are planted.
