If tropical farming is your guilty pleasure, you’ve probably taken a trip or two to Playdom’s Tiki Farm on Facebook. With nearly 3.5 million daily active users logging into Tiki Farm to build their island empires, we figure it’s due time to share some tips and tricks!
Gamezebo has a full walkthrough and strategy guide, and we’ve brought their top tips to Frisky Mongoose for easy access to the most helpful info out there. Read on for tips, strategies and a full list of achievements that will help you cash in with more gems and shells, earn more XP (experience points), and build a perfect paradise in Tiki Farm.
In the beginning do not spend money on decorations for your Island. Use the funds to purchase seeds that you can realistically tend to.
When planting seeds take into consideration how often you can check back into the game. If you can check in frequently you may want to grow fast growing crops and if you can only check in once a day crops that take a day or longer will give you better overall results.
For the first few growing cycles sell all of your harvests for profit. Us your funds only for purchasing seeds and more plots for your farm.
Visiting Neighbors is a great way to earn cash. You will earn 5 XP and 15 Shells from each neighbor you Visit.
Send out invitations daily to recruit more Neighbors into the game. The more Neighbors you have, the more money you will earn and the more gifts that will be sent to you increasing your overall profits.
If you receive items you can use sell them back to the store for coins.
Harvest your crops as soon as possible to earn the “Freshness Bonus” which is only available for 5 minutes after your harvest is ready. You may want to set an alarm for a few moments before so you don’t miss it. You will earn 1 extra XP per crop in the Freshness Bonus.
Bugs slow down your crops Growth Rate so make sure to check in and clear them out a few times a day.
Crops must be watered at least once every 24 hours or they will dry out. When a plot dries out the seed will slow down or stop growing.
