Breeding Plants?

Somebody raised the question whether the words breeding and breedable can be applied to plants. Yes, according to science they can. There is even a National Association of Plant Breeders (NAPB) in the USA. More about plant breeding can be read in the Wikipedia article on plant breeding which has a good number of external references and links as well.

SL Groups: Change of Policy

PlantPets has two official groups in SL: PlantPets and PlantPets Premium. They have been open to join because we at PlantPets believe in freedom of expression.

However, yesterday for the second time a particular avatar has been trying to spread misinformation in the group chat, this time about introducing compulsory paid food for PlantPets.

Shift to our own systems for news by IM and more...

After a lot of testing and tweaking, today PlantPets finally switched from subsribe-o-matic to our own system for news by instant message. Subscribe-o-matic is a fantastic system that works perfectly. However, we have already invested in infrastructure outside SL that can support this sort of service and we also have the expertise to implement it. So, it was about time to make our own thing.

I added a new tab to the website:

It shows the last 50 baby seeds delivered in Second Life, the time the seeds was delivered, the plantpet name of the parent and the plantpet name of the baby seed. The list is not auto refreshing for now, so if you want to refresh it you'll need to hit the refresh button in your browser.

Vampire's Bite Climbing Rose Promoted to Seasonal

We just promoted the Vampire's Bite climbing rose to seasonal. If you have baby seeds of this kind you may need to re-pack them to see the new status in the hovering text. We may be bringing this rose to the shop again for Halloween and other vampire related occasions.

You may have noticed that I've been trying different themes for the website. I think this last one is probably OK and I will move on now to doing something more enjoyable. :)

Welcome to the New PlantPets Website!

Hello everybody again and welcome to our new website! We actually launched this new website at a month ago but I had the front page finished only today. All older blog entries (below this one) are blog entries I transfered from our old blog @ I did not transfer the articles related to my plans for the next plantpet version because I have put those plans on hold for now.

New Release: Crotons

Last weekend we released a new plantpet. A set of 8 beautiful croton plantpets built by leeuwie Shepherd. I would like to thank Dreven Spitteler, Macey Kiama and Calia Heartsdale for their invaluable help with the preparation of this release! Thanks guys!

The croton plantpet comes as 6 common plantpets and 2 rare ones. The 6 common plantpets can be purchased in our main store. Today I also installed a "try me" version of one of the crotons next to the croton vendor. Please visit our main store and see yourself how beautiful the crotons are!
