Do you need to keep the plant that a baby or in this case butterfly came from in order to get a twin? If I harvest or discard it right after the butterfly is spotted will I eliminate the chance for a twin?
i was wondering the same thing! (i have errored on the side of caution & haven't been tossing it)
A twin is, by definition, already programmed on the plate before the first one is spotted. So, you can get rid of the plant and it will still visit. :)
The only thing is that butterfly twins (and triplets) give alerts and the alerts are attached to the plant. If you remove the butterpillaflora before the twin visits, it will still come -- but it won't give an alert. (Or, if the alert has started before the plant is removed, the alert will stop showing when you pull the plant). So, in the case of butterflies, it's better to leave the plant for that reason.
(No other twin gives an alert, so there is no benefit from leaving the plant for any other type of twin.)
Wow thanks Rachel! That is great information :)
