Cultivating Seeds

How to Plant a Seed or Bulb

To plant seeds or bulbs, approach a row and examine a vacant plot. After planting, water the plant. It takes 24 hours of real-time for seeds to bear fruit so what you can do is to manipulate the system clock of your gaming platform of system.

If you leave plants for up to two days, they will yield seeds instead. If you delayed for more than two days, the plants or produce will wither.

How to Cross-breed Seeds

Cross-breeding only applies to moonflower seeds. Moonflowers can be used as healing items due to their high recovery effects:

Moonflower Recovery Effect
Red Moonflower Restores up to 30% of the user’s HP.
Blue Moonflower Restores up to 30% of the user’s HP.
Gold Moonflower Restores up to 30% of the user’s HP.
Pink Moonflower Restores up to 60% of the user’s HP.
Indigo Moonflower Restores up to 60% of the user’s HP.
Peach Moonflower Restores up to 60% of the user’s HP.
White Moonflower Restores up to 100% of the user’s HP.

Red, Blue, and Gold are the only purchasable seeds in the game. In order to acquire Pink, Indigo, Peach, and White (Lunar Tear) seeds, you need to pair or crossbred a certain row of seeds in NieR’s garden or cultivation field.

Moonflower Cross-breed Patter Success Rate
Peach Moonflower Red + Gold Moonflower Seeds 10% Success Rate
Indigo Moonflower Gold + Blue Moonflower Seeds 10% Success Rate
Pink Moonflower Red + Indigo Moonflower Seeds 10% Success Rate
White Moonflower
(Lunar Tear)
Pink + Peach Moonflower Seeds 2% Success Rate

Make sure to plant the the colored seeds within the same row. For example, plant Red/Indigo/Red/Indigo/Red pattern to yield Pink Moonflowers. Water the plants as well since this helps in increasing the number of seeds they bear.

System Clock Manipulation (For PS3 only)

This method only works for the PS3 version of the game (Nier Gestalt and Nier Replicant). Save and turn off your console. Then, turn your game two days forward of real time to ensure that the planted seeds will give out new Pink Moonflower seeds. Take note cross-breeding moonflower seeds into Pink, Indigo, and Peach has a 10% success rate.

Timezone Manipulation (For PS4 and PS5)

It was noted that system clock manipulation cannot work when playing the game in PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. This is due to having their own “internal system clock” that cannot be changed by the user.

NieR Replicant Remaster - Timezone Change Backward

What you can do is to change your timezone in your console. Before planting the seeds, go to “Settings” > “Date and Time” and set your console timezone to “UTC -11:00 American Samoa”.  Then, plant the seeds in this timezone, then save.

NieR Replicant Remaster - Timezone Change Forward

Go back to your timezone setting (no need to close the game) and adjust it to “UTC +13:00 Independent State of Samoa”. This is to make the plants of flower grow through 24 hours. Reload your save file to see which flower or produce have grown.

If you see some flowers or produce that haven’t grown, you have the option to “ungrow” and replant them. Take note of these plots and revert back to UTC – 11:00 again. Reload your save file and replant the one that didn’t produce. Save and then move to forward again to UTC +13:00 to check.

If you’re aiming for a 48-hour or 2-day growth, save your game in your real timezone after moving forward 24 hours. Continue in playing the main story or do other side quests until you reach the next day. In day 2, water the produce or flowers, save your game, and shift your timezone forward to UTC +13:00 only to see the plots leave seeds in NieR’s garden.
