As said before this game requires 50 of play time.
This is equal to 250 days in game time.
To do this simply attach a USB charging cable so that the controller doesn't power down. Then you can either:
1 Go to Costolot and buy something but don't place it.
Or
2 Hit X and go to the Tower of Sour
This keeps you from being interrupted by things like a pinata request. Now you can walk away and let the garden handle itself.

If your worried about your garden being ruined or loosing pinatas you can start a new garden because play time is counted from all gardens together.

To find you play time go to your journal and find the Player Status tab.
Every day is 12 minutes

troyoyI started a new game. How long until you can get the tower of sour? When I hit X is a menu if you have nothing in your hand. Thanks.

IronInvoker47I'm doing this on the One as part of the Rare Replay collection and unfortunately my 360-in-the-One keeps freezing. It really sucks, because I finished the other 49 achievements in 19.2 hours and I've got over a day of waiting that won't save in increments due to the freezing going on. I will post some kind of fix if I ever find one. Hopefully I'm the only one with this problem.

I've been using the Tower of Sour method for 18 odd hours straight playing the rare replay Xbox One BC version.

Might just be an isolated issue hopefully for others.

CaptainSlayerOK, hi, I'm super duper late to this. But back in the day, I was at 48 hours and then my hard drive crashed and I lost my progress... I assumed that meant I had to play all 50 hours over. Am I right? This was well before cloud saves.

DEDLY CUKEAlan, as stated in the solution by Diddle, it's cumulative from all gardens.

SouldantDoes it count if you go idle or not ?

ijiekmotorsSo important to remember this is different on Xbox One and you will have to tape your controller or wrap a usb wire around it to keep the joysticks moving so your whole console doesn't go idle. I wasted ages because I didn't realize this! Good luck everyone.
EDIT: also, for those on xbox one, please check it's still all working when you can. exit costolots to see if it has frozen or not. i left it running till the achievement should have dinged, only to exit costolot, and it froze, and none of the progress saved. if you can, leave every couple of hours and save, and set it up again. better safe than sorry.

Greedy136I received every award in this game and reached the maximum player level of 108. I used online help for the variants and evolutions, but tried the rest on my own and managed to get everything in a single garden. I really enjoyed the game and it took me 43 hours in-game time (215 days). I expect hardly anybody to receive this achievement in normal play. Now I have to keep me Xbox on for seven hours. That's stupid (but the solution is great).
