You can mate your chao in two ways:

- Waiting for their natural mating season which is usually at the ages 2-3.

- Feeding your chao heart fruit.


- It is shown that chao will not mate in a full garden when breeding from eating heart fruit, but will if it happens naturally. Be sure to have rooms in other gardens if this occurs, or else a chao in that garden will be deleted.

- You can get two chao to mate simply by putting a chao inside the flower ring of another chao that is ready to mate. Please note that this occasionally fails, and heart fruit may be needed for both chao.

- A child chao will occasionally mate, but it takes a lot of heart fruit, usually over 5 of them. It is best to wait until the chao is an adult.
