How long did it take for you to get to level 42?
It used to take a LOT longer than it does now. Most of the plants up to about level 20 took longer to become RTH - bonsais took a month, and there was no diamond dust to speed things up. Fruiting dust also came along a lot later. We had to grow a complete set of all the plants which come in different colours (*two* complete sets of Bellis) and couldn't change the colour by dusting so it took a long time (and was very costly!). Even when we were first able to change the colour of the flowers (we used gold dust back then) the order of change was random so it could be rather costly to get the colour you needed. Plus without the calculator, it could take a longer time to work out the Praecocia levels by trial and error.
These days you can whizz through the levels in a few months, if you have plenty of diamonds. Back then it took a very long time - I can't remember exactly how long it took me, but I'm sure someone will remember how long it used to be.
I have no idea. I didn't keep track of it or bother to note the time when it happened.
I've had my garden since their release, June 2008 and I reached Level 42 in March 2010.
It took me ages. I kept getting distracted by butterflies and Fairy Tales!
took me about 2 years, but i froze a lot in that time
I have no idea! Is there a way to find out?
If you save pictures for your 1st Unicorns, see when you were able to attract your 1st Rainbow Unicorn :)
Remember the hunting for Pegasus and 1st Unicorn, that should be about 2 years after I started. But I don't remember when the garden level reached 42. I just went on growing the plants...
