Latest Update: 11/11/2020 – Added 4 new petals
You may have heard about diep.io and agar.io, but what about the brand new game florr.io which consists of beautiful flowers? Here I am going to write a guide for this .io game! In this post, I am not going to cover any strategy on how to defeat other players or mobs, how to defend yourself, etc. A massive sorry! (You can check here for ??? Zone strategy) But I will tell you the gameplay and the mechanics of the game, which is quite useful for newbies and pros. Also, I am going to update this post every day because the game is still in active development. Now let’s begin…
What is Florr.io?
Florr.io is a brand new .io game in 2020 which is still in active development. The game is another masterpiece by the makers of agar.io and diep.io. The game features a flower which requires you to collect “petals” to fight “mobs” and other players and prevent other mobs and players to kill you.
Let’s check the developer’s simple guide for moving:
- Mouse to move
- Left click to expand petals
- Right click to retract petals
Left-click your mouse to attack, right click your mouse to defend. Just like the game slither.io, your “flower” will move and follow your mouse.
If you have enabled keyboard movement, it is:
- WASD or arrow keys to move
- SPACE to attack (expand petals)
- SHIFT to defend (retract petals)
There are little petals which move around you. You can use them to fight and defend against other players and mobs.
You will gain experience when you break “rocks” and kill mobs. You will level up when you reach a certain amount of experience.
Here is the experience you get when you break or kill something:
- Ladybug: 3
- Massive Ladybug: 50
- Ladybug (Yellow): ?
- Ladybug (Dark Red): ?
- Bee: 3
- Small rock: 1
- Medium-sized rock: 1
- Cactus – 3
- Big rock: 10
- Beetle: 5
- Massive Beetles: 50
- Hornet: 5
- Spider: 5
- One part of Centipede/Mega Centipede – 3
- Purple Centipede – 3
- ALL Ants: 1-2
- Ant Hole: 0
The Map Difficulty increases from Easy, Medium, Hard, and ???. The ??? Difficulty is a daunting level which you will be surrounded by a huge amount of beetles and hornets trying to kill you. The colour of the map also changes by the Map Difficulty.
When you reach a certain level, you will not be able to attack in a certain difficulty. There will be a certain time of cooldown time (about 30 seconds?) that you can still attack. Here is the list:
- Level 1 to Level 14 – None
- Level 15 to Level 29 – Not be able to attack in Easy
- Level 30 to Level 44 – Not be able to attack in Easy and Medium
- Level 45+ – Not be able to attack in Easy and Medium and Hard, Oops!
You have 5 basic petals when you start the game as a Level 1 Flower. You will get more advanced petals by killing mobs or breaking rocks. Every petal needs to be recharged when it breaks or used by your flower (Rose). All common petals (except Basic) are dropped by all mobs and rocks.

Petals Damage rate/Health/Recharge time
Petals Drop Rate
The drop rate for basic petals is zero, which will not drop at any conditions. The drop rate for fast petals is the highest among the petals. The drop rate for common petals is the highest. More difficult mobs will drop rarer petals. Formerly all rocks only drop nothing or common petals.
Also, you can find the drop rate of each mob by clicking the “Mob” button in florr.io homepage, investigate yourself
You have 5 petal slots when you start the game as a Level 1 Flower. An additional petal slot will be unlocked when you level up. For example, when you level up to Level 15 Flower, you will have 6 petal slots and so on.
- Level 1 to Level 14 – 5 petal slots
- Level 15 to Level 29 – 6 petal slots
- Level 30 to Level 44 – 7 petal slots
- Level 45+ – 8 petal slots
It is where you store your extra petals. You can store up to 8 petals. If you want to delete your petals, drag the petal you want to throw away to the red box. You can also do that by keyboard shortcut. Deleting a petal gives you experience.
Deleting different types of petals give you the following amount of experience:
- Common – 2, except Basic which gives 0
- Unusual – 10
- Rare – 50
- Epic – 200
- Legendary – 1000
- Unique – 2500? (Comment below if you know)
Petal Inventory Shortcut
Use Q, E, and numeric keys to quickly swap petals without using the mouse. Move the selection using ‘Q’ (left) and ‘E’ (right). Delete a petal by selecting the petal you want to delete and click ‘T’ with your mouse.

Being Killed by Player/Mob
If you are being killed by a player or mob, it will show a death screen showing which mob or player kills you, it also shows you the statistics of the score you get and the petals that you are using before you die. You also retain some of the experience and items once you die too.
You can kill a player or mobs by ramming into other flowers or using petals. A player will drop up to 3 items from their slot or inventory. Mobs will drop 0-3 random item. Killing a player also gives you experience.

The most original game mode in florr.io. Simply players just fight each other.
It was temporarily available in two occasions that I don’t remember it. It is removed later on because the developers say it overloads the server.
