- 2 days or more: 3 Pumpkins
After four days have passed, it’s a great time for you to check your pumpkin colors. If the Pumpkins you have planted grow into Green Pumpkin, you do not need to buy the Pumpkin Starts again. Otherwise, if it is not Green Pumpkin, you may have to purchase the Pumpkin Starts and plan them again.
If you want to grow more of the same color, you can use the harvested pumpkins. To start planting more, you can use a shovel to dig a hole. After that, you can plant one of your Green Pumpkins to grow more.
To harvest your Green Pumpkin again, it will reset them to the 2 day stage that gives you exactly two days to water them again. You should water all your Green Pumpkin twice and you will get three Pumpkins per Green Pumpkin plant.
