The new Friendship’s Bloom tree in My Tribe is a cooperative mystery. First, a friend needs to fertilize the tree. Even if you have lots of friends, this can only be done once per tree, per day. Each time the tree is tended by a friend, it grows pretty new leaves.
Once it’s been fertilized by a friend, the island owner needs to send a tribesperson with at least a 3 in Agriculture over to the tree.
The next day, a friend needs to fertilize it again. It can be the same person, or a different person. Then a tribesperson with at least 6 in agriculture needs to visit the tree. Lather. Rinse. Repeat with visiting friends and agriculture increments of three. Finally, a tribesperson with a 30 or higher in agriculture can tend the tree and unlock the mystery.
Once you solve the Friendship’s Bloom, you’ll receive 3 fertilizers per neighbor, instead of the usual one. (Hey, I just thought of this — if you’ve already solved the tree and you’re helping a friend by fertilizing, can you give it three?)
Look, I enjoy MyTribe, but this is one of those zany cycles that sour me on social games. My Facebook friends are awesome, so my feed isn’t full of COME HELP ME! Fertilize my pretend tree! But I like MyTribe just a little less for encouraging that kind of spam.
