You can grow flowers! WOO!
(You have to have purchased Episode 1 to access Lukas's workshop, where the flower seedlings are located.)
GROWING BLUE FLOWERS
Go into Lukas's workshop, and use a can on a seedling. You will then pick up FLOWER IN A CAN. Go to Urchin's Grotto and find a plot of dirt. When you click on the dirt, your character should say "That looks like fertile soil." Go ahead and drag your FLOWER IN A CAN to the dirt. The flower will be planted in the dirt, but at first it droops over and will not grow. Grab a WATERING CAN and use it on the dirt + flower. In a few days the flower will bloom, and you can collect the petals! Try to grow as many as you can, because A LOT of plans have flower petals in them.
GROWING GOLD FLOWERS
(You can only grow golden flowers after you have unlocked the Isle.)
Make sure you have a FLOWER IN A CAN and a WATERING CAN! Go to the Isle, and go up the first stairway. You now have an option: Turn left, or turn right. Turn right and go up the next ladder. You will probably have to fight an automaton. Once you get to the top, you will notice a little secret area. If you have never been here before, check out the free MINER'S HAT in the suitcase next to the house. You will also note that there are three, yes, three, plots of fertile soil. Follow the same procedure as above for GOLDEN PETALS, a very important crafting tool.
