I have a full Zen garden that needs watering. If I water every plant as fast as I can, will Stinky the Snail be able to collect all the coins for me without any disappearing (with or without chocolate)?

Secondary question that would answer the first I guess. Do coins disappear in the Zen Garden at all?

    If you exit the garden he will be collecting the coins instantly during the time he is awake.

Coins in the Zen Garden are no different from coins in the game itself. They will disappear after a set amount of time.

As for Stinky the Snail, I personally have not tested if he can collect all the coins without chocolate. I know for a fact that if you give him and all the plants chocolate and then go grab a coffee, he will be able to collect most of them.

    Yes. Makes them wiggle faster and make coins faster.

    Stinky the Snail with chocolate is not fast enough to collect all of the coins. Especially if you use chocolate on your flowers. However, he will collect most of them, so it is still very beneficial.

Yes Stinky the Snail will collect most of the coins in the zen garden for three minutes. If you feed him a piece of chocolate he will stay awake for an hour. Feeding plants chocolate will decrease the percentage of coins earned by Stinky. So in short coins do disappear.

    This answer is incorrect. Although Stinky the Snail will move faster during that time, he is not fast enough to collect all of the coins under all circumstances before they disappear.
