What is the sims 4 grafting combos option?

Gardening skill in the Sims 4 doesn’t only allow you to grow, harvest, and sell plants. With some expertise, Sims can now graft different plant species. Grafting is one of the gardening perks where your Sims get to combine two different plants to get a third, new one. This will allow them to create rare, hybrid plants at home. To be able to do that, your Sims will need to level up the Gardening skill level first. Once they reach Level 5 in Gardening, they will get a chance to blend plant DNA and graft. A single plant that is grafted can give you approximately ten harvestable plants.

If you don’t want to wait for them to reach level 5, you can always use cheats. Press Ctrl + Shift + C to open the dialogue box, type testingcheats true in, and press Enter. Then open up the dialogue box again, type stats.set_skill_level_major_gardening 5 to make them reach Level 5. This will automatically unlock Take Cuts and Grafting actions that we will discuss later.

Plants for grafting

To make sims 4 grafting combos, you’ll have to have two plants – plant A for blending the DNA and plant B for being the parent plant for grafting. If you already have in your sim’s inventory the plant you plan to make a parent plant, great. If not, you can buy a seed packet via computer or phone, plant it and wait for it to grow to make it a parent.

Both plants needed for grafting can be a parent. For instance, let’s say you want to get a Death Flower hybrid. In this case, you can make both Pomengarate or Orchid a parent plant if you have any of them in your garden. Or, vice versa – both plants can become a plant A and give young branches for grafting.

how to Cut plants in the Sims 4

Grafting takes two actions – cutting and grafting. Plant cuttings will allow you to take a sample of a young branch, and grafting will allow you to attach that branch to the other plant. To take a sample from plant A, click on the plant and select ”Take Cutting”. This will sample a healthy branch from a selected plant (plant A).

Once cutting is done, you’ll need to graft. To graft, click on that healthy, grown plant you intend to make the parent plant and select ”Graft”. You’ll get to choose the second plant whose young branches you’d like to attach to the parent plant. This action will attach the cut branches to the parent plant.

In the Sims 4 grafting combos, the parent plant is the plant that dictates how quickly will your grafting combo plant blossom. However, one thing you can consider when choosing a parent is the speed of growth. If you are wondering which are the best Sims 4 best plants to graft, one tip you can try out is to choose the plants with the fastest evolving so that you can harvest faster. This means that the overall health and growth speed of the parent will determine how healthy or how fast will the hybrid grow.

Once you create a hybrid plant, you’ll be able to enjoy the benefit of having multiple harvestable plants, which is great. When making sims 4 gardening grafting combos it is important to know that every plant used in a grafting combo can be cut only once or a few times before dying. So, do count how many times you use a plant to graft.

Once you have created your combo and harvested a plant, you’ll be able to grow back the original plant at its original quality. Or, you can decide to keep the grafted plant and keep growing it. You will be able to repeat this process a few times and graft a couple of times using the same parent plant. However, be prepared to give the plant some room to regrow. Plats that are just sprouting or are too young won’t give you the option to graft.
