There is a full set of instructions for this in the watering box when you hover your mouse over a fully grown Bamboo plant in your own garden.  It's clear, though, that this still causes some confusion so I thought it would be useful to have the information contained together.   This is an update to include information about the Red Panda and Gorilla.

1.  You must have a fully grown Bamboo plant in your garden.  To plant the bamboo, buy a bamboo pot from the pot shop and hover your mouse over it.  The only option should be to plant bamboo.  If you can't see that as an option, go to the Bonus Seeds section of the seed shop.

2.  You must also have an empty plate.  Make sure that the plate is completely cleared, not just empty, otherwise the bamboo food has nowhere to go.

3. To get the bamboo food onto the empty plate, you need to spot black and white wildlife in other gardens (for example, Giant Panda, Badger, Skunk, Raccoon, Penguin, Magpie, etc).  The garden you spot the wildlife in must also have a fully grown bamboo.

4.  If you spot a Giant Panda but the bamboo has become RTH since the Giant Panda was programmed in, you will not get the bamboo.

5.  Giant Pandas give double organic food (10 feedings).  Any other black and white wildlife gives organic (five feedings).

For the Red Panda and Gorilla the same instructions apply, but to attract them you will also need the following plants in your garden as well as the fully grown Bamboo plant and bamboo food on the table:

Red Panda:   fully grown red Bellis Lycaena and fully grown red Piscis Aquebullae (you may need to use sparkle dust the change the colour).

Gorilla:   fully grown Fructus Odonata and fully grown Aureus Primus.

Additional information:

The bamboo will remain fully grown for 24 hours.
The more bamboo plants you have in your garden, the better the attraction for the Giant Panda.

List of Black and White wildlife:

Badger & Babies & Family
King Penguin (both land and underwater)
Magpie and Pairs of Magpies
Puffin (both land and Underwater)
Raccoon & Baby & Family
Zebra & Baby & Family

Bamboo has to be fully grown in your garden to leave food?  Was searching and searching and finally found something but no food, that's all I can figure out I did wrong.

Tracey and Cobweb6 years, 6 months ago

Yes, as it says in step 1, above.

I thought that just meant to attract, not get the food.

Tracey and Cobweb6 years, 6 months ago

You need to have/do everything explained in the first post.

You need a fully grown bamboo.
You need an empty plate.
The other garden needs a fully grown bamboo and you need to spot black and white wildlife there.

Thanks, Tracey.  I'm just about to embark on this quest and didn't want to ask too many questions on here.

Tracey and Cobweb6 years, 6 months ago

Don't ever be worried about asking questions; it's what the forums are for :)

You might find you get a faster response if you use the Help with the Game section, but it's OK to ask here too.

I have the babboo& the food and a enchated golden mushroom and I olny attract mice except the first one...

Claire and Sparkles6 years, 5 months ago

Giant pandas are endangered, and therefore visit infrequently. You could increase attraction for them by having multiple FG bamboo plants.
