Plot Sizes for Your Giant Plants

  • Tomatoes
    • To grow a giant tomato, plant your tomatoes in a 2×2 pattern on a 2×2 plot or larger.
  • Cucumber
    • It is the same as the tomatoes, plant them in a 2×2 plot.
  • Pumpkin

Of course, you must keep watering robots close to these plots to ensure they get enough water. It’s also important to note that growing giant plants is random, so just grow these crops normally and you’ll eventually get it.
