As you gain experience, you will increase the level of your gardening. All gardeners start at level one. While gaining levels is a major aim of most games, this can be less of a priority and more of a side-effect in Secret Plant Society. This is because the major benefit of gaining levels is access to more plants, and by the time you have planted and harvested your existing species a couple of times and explored the first few hybridisations options, you will usually be at a sufficient level to access the next genus.
About three-quarters of your ep comes from harvesting plants, and one-quarter from completing quests and finding new plants. However, as you stop earning ep for plants after you've mastered them, and there are a very limited number of quests, you will need to find new species via hybridisation to continue to gain levels, and as we've already said, the only reason to gain levels is to get new plants. This means that leveling up without fully engaging in hybridisation is both tricky and relatively pointless.

- Available species numbers are approximate. Do not expect to find all these species at the level they first become available, or even within 2-3 levels. Given the large number of Mushrooms, they may take even longer.
- Level 25 is the maximum level that can be reached currently (April 2011).
