Growing FrontierVille Wildflowers, Cacti, Skulls, & Rocks

A recent trend I’ve spied among my FrontierVille Neighbors is to keep the borderline around your frontier, specifically in the bottom corner, empty. At first I didn’t get it, but over time the intention has become clear. These pioneers are farming debris.

Not just any debris: Wildflowers, Cacti, Skulls, & Rocks to be exact. Remember that Thorn map from an earlier post? This follows the same concept. Certain wild flora are more likely to spawn in certain areas (thorns to the north, everything else south).

We Don’t Beat Around the Bush at Pioneer Pary

The above photo comes from my neighbor FrontierGirl’s homestead. Notice all the cacti and skulls? Nice.

Since we’ve been seeing more and more quests that require the player to clear these debris/wild flora, it’s a smart investment to try and grow some to have on hand.

Don’t worry if visiting neighbors try to clear it, you can always dismiss their actions.

I had plants growing all along my borders, but I decided to try my hand at making a Cactus Skull Farm. I cleared a one-space border on both sides of my bottom border and waited. And waited. Nothing grew. Then I realized I didn’t clear enough space. Hand on forehead – rookie mistake. So instead of having a one-space clearing on both sides, I made a two-space clearing on the bottom right side and filled up the border on the bottom left with crops. Within two days I had three cacti!

The Proof is in the Cactus Pudding

I was surprised at how quickly they grew! Of course, they brought along grass and saplings. For now I’m only clearing the grass and stocking up on everything else. You never know when you’ll need it!

Authors Note:

Saplings and 2 chop trees should be movable objects. Currently they are not. This is a bug and the FrontierVille Team is “working on it.”
