Watering Cans are a type of tool in the Animal Crossing series, introduced in Animal Crossing: Wild World. They are used to water flowers.

Usage

Watering cans are used to water flowers to prevent them from wilting and dying, or to promote hybridization and the breeding of new flowers. When a wilted flower is watered, it will return to life the following day.

The player must stand next to a flower to water it. A watered flower will show water droplets dropping to the ground, followed by sparkles indicating that it has been watered.

Watering flowers with the watering can is considered crucial to having and maintaining a Perfect Town environment, because it keeps flowers thriving and helps promote new growth (including hybrid flowers).

In games where the silver and gold watering cans exist, they come with special properties that can be useful to the player. For instance, the silver watering can revive red turnips in Animal Crossing: City Folk, while the golden watering may produce golden roses when black roses are watered with it.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, the function of the improved watering cans vary from the previous games, and the Beautiful Town Ordinance removes the necessity of using a watering can on flowers (they do not wilt when it is in effect).

Trivia

  • The watering can is the only tool that can be used while sitting down on a Public Works Project.
  • When flowers are watered, the data flag for being watered is not stored in the flower itself, but instead on the square the flower is on.
