You know. In this kind of manga it isn't about the story or the game breaking development or anything but the protagonist becoming overpowered while he wants to relax. And until now, the manga has perfectly achieved that!

Art is good (maybe it's just me, but i just like webtoon art way more most of the time instead of small manga blocks where you can't even see what really is happening), it's better than trash art webtoons (rich player) and around good webtoons (dungeon reset) in art style. 

Characters are decent enough for this specific genre. I am talking about the "not good enough to remember for a long time, but good enough to read again after 3 months because you forgot the story a bit and it looks cool." Dad is a stereotype, protagonist is a stereotype, 'mate/girl he needs to have around' box has also been checked off. Basically it's like every webtoon in this kind of series (I am destined for greatness, Solo login, The former top 1s sub-character training diary etc.)

Story is basically like every OP hyper realistic vr game story ever. Quests are generated by an AI so everything is not preprogrammed (That basically only means that he can get OP with the help of the system and avoiding a lot of plot holes for why he is so OP from the start.)He does something crazy in the beginning of the story or gets a legendary class/becomes OP. AI seems to favor this guy tremendously because he "doesn't play like others". That basically means he is exploring what he wanted to do in the real world or what he always wanted to do in an hyper realistic vr game. It also means he doesn'tg give a shit about core gameplay and focusses only on 1 random subject. (Reader, Leveling up by only eating, I stack experience through writing books, The pay to win bigshot and Rich player, overgeared and probably more do exactly the same in the premise of the story)

All in all nothing new storywise but a fancy makeover on a genre.

And that was exactly what i was looking for. Yes, a new "I will always remember this story and the characters! It even looks good!" Would've been nice. But sometimes you just want to read something you've read before, just in a new wrapping. Plus this genre is kind of new, so a lot of manga will have weekly updates, as they are also all quite new ones.

Large, muscular Korean man whose father has always pushed him to be a strong fighter has had trouble with misunderstandings since childhood due to his scary face and large body.  Really, all he wants to do is grow flowers and live out his dream of owning a flower shop- but he’s allergic to flowers, and is bad at raising plants irl, and even worse- his dad would totally kill him if he knew he had this kind of unmanly hobby!  Guess it’s okay to try to reach this goal in a virtual world where allergies don’t exist, right? 

Throw in some ‘walking the road less traveled’ tropes, some op special class, and fantasy things, mix well with good art, and you have another cute and fun VRMMORPG manhwa, though it’s not all that original.  Still a good read so far.

The story's still pretty new, but I can already see some problems developing. Fe gets titles and skills far too easily, and they often seem to act as plot armor. There is way too much fighting for a player who only wants to play the game in order to be a florist, with the current adventure seeming to have nothing to do with flowers or even plants. Though I guess at least the overarching quest fe got for achieving the job of "Spirit Gardener" involves plantlife, even if it also involves preventing the extinction of elvenkind. It's stupid how fe's able to fight decently well simply by smashing people with a Seed; feir job isn't even combat-oriented, so fe should be suffering a lot more combat-wise. The joke of fem looking scary, but actually being a flower-loving softie is already getting old, especially when it leads to supposed veteran players like those in the Prime Guild overestimating feir abilities by appearance alone.

i look forwad to to next chapter it is kind of wholesome seeing a guy who loves flowers persue his pasions.It is not serious about the game i feel like the game is just annother part of the story and if your main foucous is the game mechanics in the story you are missing the point of the story
