Some time before the start of the Wisp Event, a sleeping Wisp Mother will show up between the leaves next to the incubator and will wake up once the event starts.
To get the attraction flowers, you need to catch the wisps, which are released when you tap the ready Wisp Mother. The Wisp Mother is able to spawn wisps every 2 hours, with 3 to 5 wisps spawned each time. To catch them, tap the wisp and tap the net icon at the bottom. Each wisp has a chance to escape from player, which can be negated by spending 20 for a guaranteed catch or buying Golden Wisp Nets, which also guarantee the catch.
(Apparently, at least one catch is guaranteed per wisp spawn! You can manipulate it by trying to catch less needed wisps first, and if all of them miss, you'll get a guaranteed catch on the last one.)
Each moth requires its own wisp, which will drop a moth specific 10% attraction flower. Every event flower fills all three incubator slots (region, rarity and size) at once, so it is not possible or necessary to place rarity and size flowers. Currently the wisps' colours correspond with moths' rarities: common (white), uncommon (green), rare (blue), epic (purple), legendary (yellow).
It's possible to buy specific event attraction flowers right at the attraction flower inventory while the event is active. It's not possible to get them from other usual flower sources like feeding Trevor or Bee Fly.
