An interesting Floreo and Somnolentus mix, this species can only be bred successfully within the safe confines of a house..

When asking Dr Beenjamin BhD for a hint he says the following:
Verdant and Drowsy bees can be cross-bred but only when inside a house. Speaking of houses, you can get out of mine now, thanks!
