Katie’s Time Out Cherry Blossom Gardening Event Guide

The Katie’s Time Out gardening event has begun in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp for iOS and Android, running from March 29th to April 8th. Learn how to grow event Moss Blossom flowers, catch Sakurafly creatures, and get the full Cherry Blossom set in our complete guide!

Plant and Grow Moss Blossoms to Catch Sakuraflys

When you first approach your garden, Katie will speak with you the first time you approach your garden, sharing some of your very first Moss Blossom seeds for free. With your new seeds, just tap on empty dirt plots in your garden to plant and water them. When the timer on a plant ends, the Moss Blossom will bloom!

When Moss Blossoms bloom during Katie’s Time Out, there’s a random chance of a Sakurafly creature spawning on top of the plant. Once a creature is ready and waiting, you’ll have to tap on it to attempt a catch. Then when attempting a catch, there’s another random chance of the catch failing. If you do successfully catch a creature, it will be added to your event task counts for special rewards!


The corresponding Moss Blossom flower and Sakurafly creature matches are as follows:

  • Magenta Moss Blossoms spawn green Mint Sakuraflys
  • Yellow Moss Blossoms spawn purple Honey Sakuraflys
  • Part 2: Purple Moss Blossoms spawn pink-blue Azure Sakuraflys and green-pink Morganite Sakuraflys

To get an idea of your chances of spawning and catching creatures, see the table below for a summary of the rates for this event:

Mint Sakurafly60%80%
Honey Sakurafly48%69%
Azure Sakurafly30%65%
Morganite Sakurafly20%61%

Don’t Forget to Share Your Sakuraflys

The essential key to successfully completing a gardening event in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is making full use of the sharing features! While it’s possible to play solo, we highly recommend sharing with friends for the best experience.

Whenever you have Sakuraflys in your inventory after catching them, make sure to share them with friends! Just open your friends list, visit their garden, and place your creatures on any grown Moss Blossoms they have sitting there. After you share, you’ll receive Moss Blossom seeds to help you grow more.

It’s important to note that sharing creatures never negatively effects your personal task counts and rewards — there’s absolutely no reason not to share, you can only benefit! Always share as much as possible to help yourself get more seeds, while helping your friends progress in their own tasks. If you can share creatures back and forth with a buddy throughout the event, you’ll make great progress!

Event Goals for Leaf Tickets, Fertilizer, Bells

Katie’s Time Out has plenty of Event Goals available to complete for extra rewards. You’ll get bells, flower fertilizer, and most importantly free 15 Leaf Tickets! Note that goals are available in sets, one at a time, with an overall bonus reward for completing each set.

Trade in Flowers for Potted Moss Blossoms, Seeds, Flower Food, and Duplicates

When you’ve harvested lots of Moss Blossoms to make room for growing more, don’t forget to trade them in to Lloid the Gyroid to get the full benefits from your hard work during this event. In terms of furniture, you can exchange your flowers in for potted versions of each plant for 20 matching Moss Blossoms each.

Flower food is available too if you’re looking to speed up future growth of flowers. And if you want extra duplicates of some items, you can get those here too. Most importantly though, you can trade up lower quality Moss Blossoms into higher quality Moss Blossom seeds!
