We’ve just released the new Christmas Tree *Cozy*! It grows from a small little tree to a fully grown and decorated one! This is a mesh plantpet which may count as non-temporary prims on your land! The total land impact of the tree and the stand is 19 prims! All three Christmas tree plantpets are 20% off for members of PlantPets Premium until the end of December! Please note that there is only 50% chance for a Christmas tree plantpet to give a Christmas tree seed!

A lot of stuff has been going on at PlantPets at this moment. Here is an attempt to summarize some news:
1) As you know the price of the boosters did not go 10% up last September as we had planned. The 10% update will take place with the beginning of the new year instead. Prices will be updated on the 3rd of January.

We released a new cool tool for PlantPets breeders, a HUD that monitors all plantpets in the region. We would like to thank all people who helped with the beta tests in the last few days! The HUD is free for members of the groups PlantPets and PlantPets Premium until it is available in the group messages.
The HUD discovers PlantPets automatically and shows the top 10 which may require attention. The list gets refreshed and ordered automatically and the HUD does not require any setup.

Today we have released the dendrobium orchids which are built with same prims as our classical dendrobium orchids from 2008 and brand new textures which bring the best out of this classical prim work. The new 9 sets of textures were created by Hernesto Kayo of Zpr who has done a truly amazing job.

We have been revamping our very old dendrobium orchids. Hernesto Kayo of Zpr created a set of very beautiful new textures to fit our original 3D build of the dendrobium orchid. He has created 9 different colors. On the 28th of November we will release 2 versions of each color: one with 3 stems and a second one with a single stem. That makes 18 new plantpets in total.
With the release of the new dendrobium orchids, the 3 old ones will become limited editions, i.e. while they will still give baby seeds they will never come as seeds of other plantpets.

Please note that the Evil Broccoli plantpet has only one gene at the moment. It is the gene "potato head" with strength 50%. That means the baby seeds of the Evil Broccoli plantpet will be any Potato Head in 50% of the cases and any other non-limited plantpet in the other 50% of the cases. Please also not that we have united the Evil Broccoli with the Potato Heads in species Vegetable Heads.

The Evil Broccoli and Mission have been released today at midday SLT. Initially, 250 copies are available for purchase in two vendors. Vendor A with 100 seeds will sell only one seed per avatar (if the avatar has not purchased any broccoli yet). Vendor B with 150 seeds will sell any number of seeds to any avatar.
Please NOTE that the Evil Broccoli is mesh and may be counted as 5 non-temporary prims on your land! This is our first mesh plantpet too! The Broccoli mesh was created by EntecMedia especially for PlantPets!
