Plant Tycoon is a real-time managerial game in which you are growing plants, trying to keep them healthy and prosperous. You use your mouse to place soil in the pot, water it, add a seed, give it plant food, etc. When the plants are old enough, you can pollinate them to gather seeds and/or sell them for profit. If you collect enough profit, you can purchase better equipment for your green house or nursery and buy more exotic seeds. If you see an insect around your plants, you can, optionally, use the butterfly net to collect it.
