While retesting Mottled Prickly Spotted, I have found that its gene hits match the range that Eigam has recorded for Dry Green Spotted. (Peace)

*value indicates the number of remaining points that can be tested with known plants. An indicator of how much more specific this hit can be.

Mutagen hit wish-list

  • 50 to 54.17
    • Change Peacefulness #13 to Giant x2, Dwarf x2. Size combination achieved in Shelyak's Circe
  • 25.00 to 33.33
    • Add C1 M0 Y0 inner petals to Alice Over Heels (P#28). Done with Mystique
  • 0.00 to 20.69
    • reduce Onion Skin outer petals to C0 M1 Y0
  • 76.47 to 88.24
    • Reduce Pink Giant leaves to C2 M0 Y0

    • Reduce Peaceful Sky Outer leaves to C0 M1 Y1

Mutagen Decoding Walkthrough

Figuring out What that mutagen does

It’s another long logic puzzle!  A drop of a particular mutagen will do the same thing every time.  With enough drops, you can design different experiments to determine what it is doing.


Basic concept:

You have two plants of the same basic type.

Put them in the greenhouse, one on the left splint, one on the right splint.

Add one drop of mutagen.  Carefully record what you have done.   Incorrect assumptions, misclicks and sleepy scientists are disastrous.   So are record keeping errors.


The plant in the left splint is ABCDE.  The mutagen hits exactly one gene of that plant and pulls it out.

The plant in the right splint is VWXYZ.  The mutagen hits exactly one gene of that plant and pulls it out.

Those two genes are swapped and you are given both plants back.

Your task is to puzzle your way through what single gene changed in those two plants.


If you like using revelation solvents, you can get hard data, especially if the plants are very short and you have lots of rare mushrooms sitting around.

The left splint plant, ABCDE, became <playername cross #1> AZCDE.  You now know that the left splint gene hit is in the 20% to 40% range.

The right splint plant, VWXYZ, became <playername cross #2> VWXYB.  The right splint gene hit is in the 80% to 100% range.

The plants we are working with have much longer strings of genes. Revelation solvents are less practical, so we plant them to see if we can detect changes. When working with flowers, the gene swap frequently damages an "active" set of genes. So it is not unusual to see a reduction in color, or a change in size.

A reduction in color is not always a bad thing. A single mutagen swap did this to Hatch's Bud: Hatch's Golden Bud

  • the outer petal color lost one yellow
  • the inner petal color lost one cyan (When cyan is mixed with magenta and yellow, "black" is added, and the color is less vibrant)
  • the result was a flower with pleasantly matching petals


Here’s what it looks like in a real set of trials:

Decoding Crackly Reticulated Striped. This takes a lot of illustrations. Still under construction.
