Interestingly, we might also see new types of trees and plants in the next update. Developers have already focused a lot on islands’ greenery in New Horizons; therefore, it won’t be too surprising if they add more.

Cactus can also be seen used in the terrain in Happy Home Paradise. This new item looks very cool and you can also display them outdoors. Unfortunately, we don’t have any desert terrain; however, you can use path terraforming tools to create a sandy path that will be perfect to place some Cactus around.

Potted trees will also be a great addition to city theme islands. They look very tall in the trailer and will definitely stand out after its release. Next is the Japanese Pine, and it is very famous in traditional gardens in Japan. It looks absolutely amazing and we get the first look of it outside the Shino’s house in Happy Home Paradise.

Not many players know about Baobab trees as they were only shown on the Japanese website. One player even suggested that they will make a Le Petit Prince-themed area on their island with these trees. Moreover, they might be the best item to look forward to in the upcoming update.

Dead tree is not the original name of the tree, but it is the tree that players have seen before in the game. They have seen it on Halloween and Bunny Day events with lots of decoration. However, users will get their hands on the plane tree with no decoration. It looks very spooky and will go amazing with the haunted forest theme.

New Plants arriving in the upcoming update

  • Artificial Plants
  • Fiddlehead Ferns
  • Plumeria Bushes
  • Vines

In the trailer, we can spot two topiary plants which look absolutely stunning. They are very similar to plants that players could get in New Leaf from the Weeding Day and it’s really cool to see them coming back to ACNH. Fiddlehead Ferns are a new type of plant that we spotted on one of the upcoming mysterious islands.

Furthermore, it seems like they will also glow in the dark. Therefore, if you are interested in them, make sure to collect many Nook Miles Tickets as traveling with Kapp’n will be a lot more expensive.

Plumeria bushes are the new type of bushes that will also be available from only Mysterious tours with Kapp’n. Unfortunately, it looks like you won’t be able to grow them on your island, meaning you can place them directly. Interestingly, Nintendo will also introduce new types of vines in the November update.

In the trailer, we can see that players can use them to climb cliffs which might replace the use of a ladder. In conclusion, it looks like users who like jungle theme island will be more delighted to see such amazing items after the update launches. Are you excited about collecting new trees and plants?
