Welcome to Plant Pickers! I mean Gaming!
This is the main screen that you see when you open up the Gaming view. There's quite a bit that can go on here, but initially you won't see much.
You'll see all of your Sprouts in random places at their various stages of growth and any applicable import items that you've unlocked. Some Sprouts have ranged effects when collected so their placement matters, but you can't move them around where they are once grown so some strategic trimming may be in order if your fields (sometimes called gardens) get full. Collecting plants can earn you Bits and Gaming EXP.
This is the section with the various upgrades that you can purchase. At the top is your Bit Counter and the Logbook which details all of the plants, and their growth stages, that you've reached before which provides a Bit gain multiplier. Bits are also colored in either White, Green, Red, Purple, or Blue and they change color once you reach 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 for that tier. (= 1e72 Bits, = 1e54 Bits, = 1e36 Bits, = 1e18 Bits.)
Initially unlocked, this provides your first set of 3 upgrades at the cost of Bits: Base bit value, Growth cycle time, and the maximum amount of Sprouts you can have.
This is where you can unlock new breeds of Sprouts by using DNA from harvesting sprouts; more DNA equates to higher chance, though the rate slows with each new Sprout. You can also spend Bits increase the chance for a Sprout to evolve, or move to the next growth stage, every growth cycle.

Expensive boxes from Idlezon that once unlocked give various abilities that can be upgraded.
Spend bits on bonuses around the game. The bonuses are displayed in a two-dimensional table, where in order to make a certain bonus unlockable, you have to first purchase the bonus to the left or above it.
