Forest Plants

Plants are created by the Forest and Swamp Giants. The Forest Giant’s flowers specialise in generating food, while the Swamp Giant’s specialise in generating Tech.

To upgrade plants you must use the Forest Giant’s Fruit and Leaf Aspects, the Ocean Giant’s Growth aspect, and the Swamp Giant’s Toxic Aspect.

Don’t forget that the Forest Giant’s 'Fertility Boost' and Ocean Giant’s Monsoon can let you apply superior aspects to a plant before you reach them through ambassadors. For example, using a Lesser Leaf Aspect on a Tile that has been buffed by either of these powers has a very high chance of imbuing the plant with a Potent Leaf Aspect, allowing you to grow Pear Trees after picking up one Forest Ambassador.
