How to unlock the Flower Shop part-time job in Persona 5 Royal
To unlock the flower shop part-time job in Persona 5 Royal, Joker will need his Charm to reach at least level 2 (“Head-turning”). This isn’t particularly difficult, and can be reached by reading books, watching films, or bathing in the bath house (particularly Sundays).
Once you’ve reached “Head-Turning” Charm, then head to the underground passage of Shibuya station from 4/18 onwards and examine the magazine stands. You’ll have the option of calling Rafflesia (among others), who’ll take you on with minimal fuss. From this point on, you can turn up basically any time and work a shift. It’s based in the Shibuya Underground Mall.
Benefits of the flower shop part-time job in Persona 5 Royal
As already discussed, the flower shop is a great way of increasing Joker’s kindness, but this can be considerably increased if you turn up on the right day, and provide customers with the best flower combinations.
On a typical shift, you will earn 2 points towards your kindness, but this can be increased to 3 points if you receive a customer bouquet request and select the right flowers. We’ll cover the specific combinations further below, so you can always earn this additional benefit.
Furthermore, you will earn 3,200 yen on a typical shift and up to 7,800 yen on busy shifts. Busier shifts are on Wednesdays or Saturdays, where Happy Flower Days are in effect, and even on a standard shift you can increase earnings to 4,300 yen with a correct bouquet combination.
There are also some bonus scenes where Haru and Yusuke occasionally show up at the end of your shift, giving some dialogue choices that can sneak some extra music notes towards their next confidant levels. For the record, this can also happen with different confidants in the other part time jobs as well.
How to unlock the flower shop Mementos request
Moreover, there is a Mementos request called “Who’s Been Assaulting People?”, which can be accessed from 8/3 onwards. However, you’ll need to work two shifts in the flower shop before the request is provided by Mishima via text.
Once Mishima has given you the request, work a shift in the flower shop again, and you should have the opportunity to ask about the culprit. If you don’t get the option to ask, Morgana will specifically say that you’ll have to work there again – so unfortunately, that’s exactly what you will have to do. In total, you will have to work at least 3 shifts in Rafflesia to complete this request.
Once you have asked, you’ll be given the name Taizo Naguri. With this knowledge you can head into the Path of Kaitul in Mementos and take him down to earn a Charge skill card.
Correct flower combinations for the flower shop job in Persona 5 Royal
When customers turn up and make cryptic requests for flower bouquets, Joker will have to pick a specific number of flowers from the list.
Here is the right combination for each customer request in the flower shop. There are a total of nine possible combinations – and snagging the right ones will reward you with more kindness points:
Flowers to Express Love: Scarlet Rose, Care-Nation and Enamored Orchid
Red Flowers: Scarlet Rose, Care-Nation, Gecko Orchid
Thank You Flowers: The Sweetest of Peas, Rainbow Sage, Gecko Orchid
Celebration Bouquet: Scarlet Rose, Care-Nation, Venerable Chrysanthemum
Small Flowers with Soft Colors: Justice Jasmine, Enamored Orchid, Fluorescent Freesia
Big Flowers with Little Fragrance: Gold Gerbera, Venerable Chrysanthemum, Fluorescent Freesia
Bright, Pungent Flowers: Scarlet Rose, The Sweetest of Peas, Stinking Olive
Flowers for Friend’s Childbirth: Rainbow Sage, Delightful Lily, Gold Gerbera
Flashy and Exciting Flowers (four flowers): Scarlet Rose, Gold Gerbera, Gecko Orchid, Venerable Chrysanthemum
By nailing these combinations, you’re in for some more money and some additional kindness, so it’s well worth getting them correct.
Buy nutrients… until Shinjuku is unlocked
The plant in Joker’s room is another source of some kindness points which can be earned without taking up any precious time! Examine the plant pot and you’ll have the option to feed it, and this is a priceless opportunity to get kindness points without having to waste a time slot.
If you turn up at Rafflesia flower shop in the Underground Mall and choose to simply do some shopping, you can buy Bio Nutrients. Feeding this to the plant will boost your kindness by two points – a great way to spend 1,200 yen. Always make sure you have some nutrients in your possession.
However, once Shinjuku is unlocked on 6/18, then you should instead buy the Mega Fertilizer from the flower shop there. This will cost a bit more at 3,000 yen, but increases kindness by 3 points when fed to the plant. Once you’ve fed it, you won’t be able to do this again for a while but simply keep checking every time you go back to your room and eventually Morgana will prompt you to give it the next lot of nutrients.
You can also buy a book called Flowerpedia in Shinjuku, which gives some better flower descriptions to help you pick the right combinations. However, this is not necessary since we’ve got all of the necessary combinations above anyway! Spend your subway reading slot on another book to boost social stats.
That’s everything you need to know about flowers and the Persona 5 Royal flower shop part-time job.
The part-time flower shop job is a great way to reap a number of benefits. Honestly, once you have maxed kindness and beaten the Mementos request, you don’t really need to go back to the flower shop part-time job in Persona 5 Royal. Though it can feel rather harsh to ignore Hanasaki’s deserate pleas for help via text, so the guilt may get the better of you in the end…
