Plants or mushrooms?

Ok so THT announced the new “plants” which are basically a gift that show that you really like a project.
But there’s a little problem.
They were not able to decide if they should call them “plants” or “mushrooms”. Because in the notifs, it’s plants,


on profiles it’s mushrooms,

the logo is mushrooms,
on the video it’s plants

And on your own profile it’s both

lol @elizabeth, @ana you guys might wanna decide if it’s plants or mushrooms.
I suggest plants bc mushrooms don’t need seeds to grow but whatever

The symbol for seeds is not a seed (small plant)

The symbol for plants is not a plant (fungi)

And I am confused now

Yes lol I agree the symbol for seeds should be a seed, and the current seed symbol should be used for plants

But a seed can look like a blob in a silhouette form and a non silhouette symbol doesn’t look too good.
Maybe a small sprout?

Mushrooms are a type of plant, if I’m not mistaken, a large variety of plants will be available in the future, and your plants section would display in order how many of each plant you have

Mushrooms are not plants, they’re fungi.

Unless they are going to add different types of plants later :thinking:

That seems like the end goal

Hey, totally see your point, but like in every creative environment, we play with different ideas to see what’s fun and fits Hopscotch culture.

If you have any suggestions for future gifts from the world of plants/fungi - please go ahead, we’d love to hear your ideas! :wink: :mushroom: :sunflower: :hibiscus: :tulip: :deciduous_tree: :palm_tree: :cactus: :shamrock: :lemon: :apple:

What if there was a Venus flytrap plant?

Ooh, what if all the gifts had backstories like the characters?


How about a potted flower that has a simple design that has a color selection, so I can send a blue flower to someone! Or a red one. This adds a more personal touch! Also maybe let users choose which message appears in the notifs of the receiver. Another few plant ideas would be a fruit tree, a potato (like one that’s underground?), a banyan tree just like the one in the app but maybe like the “grandson” or the “grandfather”? Just to give a unique spin. A fruit tree? A palm tree? Or just a variety of different “not just green” intresting trees. Also maybe like individual flowers, or whole bouquet’s, the flower costs 2 seeds, and the bouquet costs 10, cuz it has 5 times the flowers of course! Lavender would be cool, as well as :cactus: cacti! Also a sunflower would be cool! Maybe a few not so realistic ones like a “money tree” or “ rainbow unicorn” tree. Here are my suggestions that I could think of in 5 mins. Sorry for all the typos I’m kinda rushing rn lol

Mushrooms have a nice charm to them, but I feel like THT should call them plants…

Mushrooms are decomposers. They are fungi. They need something dead so they can gain nutrients…I think you can piece together what i’m trying to point out… also mushrooms spread by spores not seeds! giving seeds won’t make much sense
